The residents of Vasundhara, Ghaziabad have been trying to hinder the alterations of the use of plot in the sectors of 7 and 8 by making revived efforts.
Under the banner of Vasundhara Vikas Samiti, the residents came out in a protesting march on Thursday to get their demand fulfilled. This protest took place in Sector 16 in front of the UP Housing Board.
Going against the welfare and wishes of the people, the government of Akhilesh Yadav had converted the plot of 41 acre to ‘mixed’ use from ‘institutional’ use. According to the residents, this step was taken for the advantage of the private developers and that too at an expense of the land reserved for public utilities. Residents had protested against this but it went futile as the Housing Board ultimately took the decision of changing the land use.
Housing board was supposed to hold an auction of a plot in sectors 7 and 8, and therefore, to hinder the process of auction, the protest was taken out by the residents.
As the new government has taken the charge and control, the residents are hoping to get their demand fulfilled after this protest.
