Ashish Jalan, a Campa Cola resident said they would no longer obstruct the MCGMwhich was implementing the SC order on illegal flats and allow the civic officials inside the complex from tomorrow.
Municipal Corporation of Greater Mumbai (MCGM) officials reached the housing complex in the plush Worli area of south Mumbai and for the third day today were seen trying to convince the residents to let them perform their duties.
Campa Cola raises moral issues hard to duck though they are lost in the plethora of court cases seeking stays for demolitions. There are a lot more non-slum illegal structures than one can imagine.
Mumbai municipal officials today descended on the posh Campa Cola society to cut off essential supplies to the illegal flats but are facing stiff resistance from the residents.
"In response to your letter, the residents of the Campa Cola compound are ready to hand over the keys to your ward office provided the Municipal Commissioner and Chief Minister give us a written and registered affidavit addressing the following the points," reads the letter submitted to BMC by the Campa Cola Compound Residents Association on Thursday morning.
"Use of force is the last thing that we will do. If it (eviction) is happening peacefully, it's welcome. (However) if the eviction does not happen peacefully, there is no other option than to use force. But why should there be any confrontation?" Additional Municipal Commissioner Mohan Adtani, in charge of the demolition of flats, told PTI.
"We are not vacating the flats and all the resident will camp inside the compound. We are hoping that Chief Minister Prithviraj Chavan will give us some relief," Nandini Mehta, spokesperson for the Campa Cola residents said.
