The Campa Cola Residents Welfare Association (CCRWA) has written to President Pranab Mukherjee an “SOS petition” as a last attempt to save the 96 illegal flats across seven buildings of the compound from being demolished.
In their mercy petition, residents claimed that they had been singled out and alleged that the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation, in several other cases, had given post-facto approvals to regularise illegal structures. Narrating the history of their case, the residents pleaded that the President grant clemency and intervene in the matter to stop the eviction and demolition slated for May 31, as set by the Supreme Court.
