Uttar Pradesh chief minister Akhilesh Yadav will interact with homebuyers next week through videoconferencing to address their grievances, Phatturam Bhojwani, adviser to Noida, Greater Noida and Yamuna Expressway authorities said on Wednesday.
Around 3.5 lakh homebuyers in Noida, Greater Noida and Yamuna Expressway areas have been suffering for four to five years as the builders have failed to deliver houses on time citing slowdown in the realty market.
There are 86 under-construction group housing projects in Noida, 95 in Greater Noida and 13 in Yamuna Expressway area that are running way behind the schedule.
“I met chief minister Akhilesh Yadav in Lucknow on September 12 and discussed the issues concerning the homebuyers with him for nearly an hour. He asked me to make a list of all the buyers as well as builders whose projects are delayed. I will share the list with the chief minister. He will interact with homebuyers through videoconferencing next week,” said Bhojwani.
Bhojwani, who is known to be close to Samajwadi Party chief Mulayam Singh Yadav, was recently appointed as the adviser to Uttar Pradesh industrial and development department and was allotted accommodation and office in the Noida authority.
When asked whether the alleged conflict between Akhilesh Yadav and his uncle Shivpal Yadav would affect the functioning of the government and the Noida authority, he said, “The trouble will be over very soon and the chief minister will resolve all issues aptly. Akhilesh has full control over the Samajwadi Party and the government with the blessings of his father. Akhilesh wants that general public, particularly homebuyers and investors, should not suffer,” said Bhojwani.
Bhojwani meets people in the authority’s Sector 6 office and also at his house in Sector 44.
“Earlier, people could meet authority officials only between 10am and 12 noon on working days. But I am available in the office for the public from 10am to 5pm. Any person who is facing any problem can also meet me at my house in Sector 44 from 5 pm to 6 pm,” said Bhojwani.
