New Delhi, Feb 1 (UNI) Replying to Delhi High Court's query whether the flats being constructed for the players of Commonwealth games would be sold the Delhi Development Authority (DDA) in its affidavit stated it will sell the flats after the games concluded.
The affidavit clearly says "after the Commonwealth games are over the residential complex constructed for the stay of atheletes, player, officials shall be put to residential use." The allegations against DDA are they have violated the court orders and started construction of posh residential flats without the approval of the Yamuna Monitoring Committee in the vicinity of the river bed. The Delhi High Court had ordered there can be no construction of permanent structures within a distance of 500 meters on both sides of the river bed but the the DDA did not seek permission or ask clarification of the court orders.
The petitioners Vinod Kumar Jain and Rajinder Singh told the court that the DDA will sell the permanent structures built there and oblige a chosen few which is in utter violation of the law. They also said that recently the Yamuna Monitoring Committee had removed all structures including religous sites from the Yamuna bed and therefore, they cannot sell the flats on the pretext of Commonwealth games.The matter will be heard next Friday by Justices A K Sikri and Rekha Sharma.
