BMC officials enter Campa Cola society to cut gas, water and power supply
Finally the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) officials are allowed to enter in Mumbai's Campa Cola Society compound today. Earlier the BMC officials faced a stiff resistance from the residents of the society whose flats have to be demolished. On Sunday the residents gave up and said they would allow BMC officials to cut-off essential supplies.

As per the latest reports coming in, the BMC officials have reached the Campa Cola housing society to cut the electricity supply.

Keshav Ubale, Assistant Commissioner of BMC said, "Gas supply, water supply and power supply, we will disconnect all the three basic amenities. For this, there are four teams of Mahanagar Gas Limited, four teams of BMC and there are also four teams to disconnect the water supply."

"This is a time bound work, and we have to do the work keeping in mind the Campa Cola residents. We will see that the residents are least affected by this work," added Ubale, as reported by ANI.

The residents of 102 illegal flats in the Campa Cola society got ready to allow BMC officials after a meeting with Maharashtra Chief Minister Prithviraj Chavan. The residents are saying that they have taken this decision after two protestors being hospitalised, which includes a 60-years-old heart patient and the second person was an asthma patient.

The residents apologized to the government agencies for the protest and they also thanked the BMC for their cooperation. Meanwhile the residents have also filed an urgent petition with the President, requesting his intervention to stay the demolition of the illegal flats.
