On Sunday, residents of the Campa Cola compound said that they would open their gates to the officials so that they could carry out the demolition process. This comes after the residents met Maharashtra Chief Minister Prithviraj Chavan on Sunday, who assured them that he would look into their problems within the legal framework.
One of the residents then told reporters that they were withdrawing only because they were tired of fighting 'but we will fight the system so that we can save our homes.'
The residents had started protesting from Thursday after the BMC officials arrived at the compound to begin the demolition work but returned after facing stiff protests from the residents.
BMC officials are likely to cut the power and water supply and begin the demolition work on Monday.
