LUCKNOW: A high-powered committee of the state assembly inspected Ansal API’s Sushant Golf City project on the city’s outskirts recently, warning its promoters that they should ensure speedy completion of the project and civic amenities for residents.
The move comes close on the heels of former chief minister Akhilesh Yadav shifting to a villa in the township.
The committee comprising MLAs of different political parties has also directed the promoters to complete mandatory housing segments for economically weaker section, failing which strict action would be taken against them.
LDA vice-chairman and top authorities of Ansal were also present during the inspection and meeting of the committee of the House in the township.
The sub-committee is headed by BJP MLA Vinod Kumar Katiyar and has representatives of SP, BSP and Congress. The sub-committee had been constituted by Speaker Hridaya Narain Dixit, who heads the petition committee of the House.
The petition committee of the Assembly addresses grievances of people by summoning government officials.
Hearing a series of complaints against Ansal API, the Speaker had constituted a sub-committee to exclusively listen to the complaints.
National president of Samajwadi Party and former chief minister Akhilesh Yadav and his father and SP patriarch Mulayam Singh Yadav had recently shifted to Ansal villas after the Supreme Court ordered former chief ministers to vacate government bungalows.
Dixit said the committee has briefed him on Saturday’s meeting and decided to once again inspect the township on July 2. If by that time the developers fail to fulfil their promises, he would ask the housing department to initiate disciplinary action against them.
