NEW DELHI: Continuing their protest against a proposed mall in the middle of their locality, an umbrella body of South Delhi RWAs has approached the Delhi Development Authority (DDA) to scrap the plan.
Residents from Greater Kailash-II, Chittaranjan Park, Alakanand and Kalkaji say that, if allowed, the mall will result in major traffic mess in the residential colonies, as there are no alternate approach roads available. The members of the association Citizens’ Alliance met DDA vice-chairman Uday Pratap Singh recently to discuss the issue.
As per the Delhi high court order, the land-owning agency had to constitute a committee of all stakeholders to consider the apprehensions raised by the residents. “We don’t know what DDA has decided. We have told the VC about our apprehensions. A mall in the locality is not feasible,” said Vivek Sharma, general secretary of Citizens’ Alliance.
