After the recent Twitter campaign by flat buyers of Amrapali Sapphire, residents of GH-7 society at Crossings Republik township in Ghaziabad have initiated a Twitter campaign against alleged poor maintenance at the 1,900-flat highrise society near National Highway 24.
The residents have created a hashtag #GAURS_MANOJGAUR_RUINED_CROSSINGREPUBLIK_GH7 and are posting comments while also tagging the Prime Minister’s Office, UP Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav, Ghaziabad Member of Parliament General (retired) VK Singh and Gaursons’ brand ambassador Rishi Kapoor.
“The campaign is against pending issues of handover and maintenance. We had also filed our objections in May 2015 against the deed of declaration filed by the developer who has not responded. The builder also hasn’t answered several letters issued by Ghaziabad development authority,” said Sanjay Singh, president, GH7 apartment owners’ association.
Residents added that the hashtag was against developer Manoj Gaur, MD, Gaursons India Private Limited, as he is also a whole-time director of Crossings Infrastructure.
Expressing surprise at the Twitter campaign, Gaur said that only some general maintenance is required, which is undertaken by a facility management company and the developer has nothing to do with it.
“It has been six years since residents were given possession. After the Amrapali episode, residents have started the campaign and are doing it without any information. They never came for a meeting. We have already applied for completion and it is considered a deemed completion as GDA has not responded within the time frame,” said Gaur.
“We have told residents that it is incorrect to use a single name or our brand name in their campaign as the highrise was developed by a consortium of developers. The campaign stems from internal politics among residents to take over the highrise. If they want a handover, they should call a general body meeting and take over,” he added.
