New Delhi, June 29 (UNI) Congress MLA Mahabal Mishra and Municipal Councillor Virender Kasana today handed over a representation to Union Urban Development Ministry Jaipal Reddy opposing the ministry's decision to auction Delhi Development Authority Middle and Higher Income Group flats in the city.
The two, who were also DDA members, met the minister at his office here and handed over the representation this afternoon.
In their representation the two state congress leaders said the decision was anti-people and it should be withdrawn immediately.
The representation would be considered, the minister said without giving any assurance.
Earlier, BJP MLA Mange Ram Garg, also a DDA member, had opposed the decision and demanded the Prime Minister's intervention.
This decision should not be implemented and the flats should be alloted to to people who had booked for these by making payment, he added.
Today's representation comes after all four non-official DDA members - Mr Mishra, Mr Kasana, Mr Garg and another Congress Jile Singh Chauhan - had walked out of a meeting at DDA yesterday opposing the decision to auction flats instead of allotment through draw of lots, saying the decision had been taken 'bypassing' the DDA and Delhi Lieutenant Governor B L Joshi who was its Chairperson.
Later, the four met the L-G and urged him to speak to Mr Reddy on the issue.
