The residents of Shiv Shakti Enclave in Noida's sector 81C on Wednesday started an online campaign on Twitter to save their houses from being demolished by the Noida Authority.
On Tuesday, over 200 residents of the colony held a protest in front of Noida's sector 81 metro station after being served an eviction notice by the Noida Authority under the Public Property Act of 1984.
During the protest, the residents demanded that the First Information Report (FIR) filed by the Noida Authority against 116 residents of the colony should be withdrawn and the eviction notice should be terminated.
As per the FIR lodged on August 18 in Noida Phase II, 116 residents of the colony were booked under section 3 (mischief causing damage to public property) and 5 (no person accused or convicted of an offence punishable under section 3 or section 4 shall, if in custody, be released on bail) of the Public Property Act of 1984.
Talking to our reporter, the Resident Welfare Association (RWA) Secretary SN Rawat had questioned that " How can an FIR be registered against the residents when the case regarding the land is on-going in Surajpur lower court".
According to the residents, BJP MP Gautam Budh Nagar Mahesh Sharma had also written a letter to the Noida Authority requesting them to hold the eviction and demanded an investigation.
