India Today logo India Today 19-08-2017

Scores of home buyers of Jaypee Infratech affected by delayed possessions staged a protest at Jantar Mantar on Saturday and threatened to commit suicide if the government does not help.

Over 32,000 home buyers of Jaypee Infratech were affected due to the delayed possession.

"During the partition of our country we were robbed and migrated. Now we are again being robbed by the builders, and the government is turning a blind eye," said SK Suri, a senior citizen and a home buyer.

About 100 home buyers gathered at the Jantar Mantar on Saturday morning with placards and started shouting slogans against the builders, government and the Noida and Greater Noida authorities. They had planned to march till the PM's residence but permission was not granted by the police.

"Since nobody is hearing us, we feel like committing suicide like the farmers are doing. I am a retired man and I have invested all my life's saving for a flat. Now I am living in a rented accommodation. Is there any law in this country for us," said SK Sharma, a home buyer.

The bank, which had given loan to the Jaypee group had recently moved a petition for Jaypee Infratech's insolvency, following which a series of protests erupted.

"If the government doesn't listen to us, we will continue our protest and will show them our power in next elections," said Aditya Mann, a home buyer.
