Lata’s belated call as Campa flats get notice

Mumbai :  The BMC on Monday served notices to the Campa Cola residents to submit their flat keys within 72 hours. In the event of failure to hand over the keys of the premises along with physical possession, legal action will be initiated against the residents.

The beleaguered residents found a last-minute supporter in Lata Mangeshkar, who termed the move as “unjust”.

“I want to say only one thing to the Maharashtra government with regards to the Campa Cola compound. If the homes of these residents are razed, thousands of people will be rendered homeless, that includes children and senior citizens,” the Bharat Ratna awardee tweeted. She also said that the residents should not be penalised for the wrong committed by the builders.

“Already three people have lost their lives due to shock at their homes being razed. Why should the residents be made to pay for the mistakes committed by the builders? This is an injustice to them,” the 84-year-old singer added.
