The Hindu- Redress issues in housing societies, L-G urged

A Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) delegation called on Lieutenant-Governor Anil Baijal here on Wednesday urging him for “immediate redressal” of issues being faced by residents of the Group Housing Societies.

There are an estimated 1,200 societies in the Capital housing over 10 lakh residents. Arguing that societies such as these were in “urgent need of redevelopment”, the delegation, which consisted of BJP Rajya Sabha MP Vijay Goel and West Delhi MP Parvesh Verma, announced that they would soon hold a “Mahasammelan” for Group Housing Societies.

The delegation submitted a memorandum to the Lieutenant-Governor to address the issues immediately.

In a statement, Mr. Goel said that the development of Group Housing Societies in the city had begun in 1980 and its condition had become “deplorable” in the last forty years.

‘Houses in shambles’

“These societies are in urgent need of redevelopment and it can be done as per the Master Plan of Delhi-2021. But strong decisions are expected from the government so that these colonies do not face issues of parking, community services, and other basic amenities post-redevelopment. Today lakhs of houses are in shambles,” the statement said further.

Meanwhile, Mr. Goel announced that Delhi’s “first Mahasammelan for Group Housing Societies” would be held at the Talkatora Stadium on Sunday. Besides addressing the “host of issues” facing the Group Housing Societies in Delhi, the Mahasammelan would also feature an open discussion on the Union Budget 2019.

L-G to hold meetings

The statement said, following the meeting with Mr. Baijal, it had been decided that the L-G would hold meetings with the MPs and office-bearers of the Federations of the Group Housing Societies.

“The societies demand separate water connections to the flats instead of single connection to the entire society. Besides, the issue of appointment of auditors by the Registrar of the Group Housing Societies too should be addressed,” Mr. Goel said.

“This is for the first time such an event shall be held post-independence. The Mahasammelan would also feature the discussion on the failures of the Kejriwal government on several fronts, including pollution, electricity, water, traffic jams and healthcare,” Mr. Goel added.
