Gurgaon, January 21
Residents of the Sarai Allawardi colony in Sarai Allawardi village are miffed at getting the eviction notices from the authorities even as the case is still pending in the high court.

They have decided to take up the matter with Congress leaders.

The residents alleged that a Congress MLA was behind the move to favour a firm. They said the MLA had purchased land around the colony for a project and had an eye on it.

Dr Abdul Latif Khan, a resident, said the village panchayat and Waqf Board had authorised their elders to construct houses on the land under their jurisdiction adjoining the village mosque about 30 year ago.

The complication arose on account of the creation of the Municipal Corporation in Gurgaon and the authority of the village land vests with it now.

Over 300 families reside in the colony. They residents said they had developed the infrastructure by pooling in resources.

They said the corporation had initiated a move to evict them a few months ago. They moved the Punjab and Haryana High Court that directed the authorities concerned to take necessary action. Consequently, a nine-member committee, comprising officials concerned, was constituted. It came up with a rehabilitation plan for the families following their eviction.

The authorities said the land was a government property. Following the removal of the encroachments, the affected families would be rehabilitated under Ashiana, a welfare scheme of the government.
