The residents of the Channi Himmat Housing colony are up in arms against the deep rooted nexus of JK Housing Board officials who are allegedly keen on allotting green patch of land to big business houses for raising new market in clear violation of the original master plan.
On Tuesday a delegation of the senior residents of the Housing colony even called on the Deputy Chief Minister Dr Nirmal Singh, holding charge of the Urban development and Housing Ministry to apprise him of the alleged move by the corrupt babus of the JK Housing board to allot shops to businessmen for running their private businesses.
According to the aggrieved residents of Channi Himmat,instead of checking rampant encroachment of land the JK Housing board officials were deliberately siding with the land mafia and other vested interests to sale small plots for shops and other business enterprises.
According to the residents of the Channi Himmat housing colony the JK Housing board officials were contemplating allotment of land in clear violation of the original master plan.
During their brief interaction with Deputy Chief Minister at his official residence in Jammu the members of the delegation also made it clear that under no circumstances they would allow JK Housing board to indulge in open loot of green gold by by way of raising shops and if required they would go to the court of law to seek justice.
Coming out of the meeting the residents of the Channi Himmat Housing colony were not happy with the response of the Deputy Chief Minister as he failed to give them any assurance over the issue of alleged allotment of shops on a green patch of land.
