A year before this, the court had ordered families to vacate the building by May 31 so that BMC can demolish the building and take further steps. In this case several court hearings have taken place and date of flat demolition has been extended from May 31, 2013 to November 2013.
The residents have not stopped hoping that their flats would be regularised. Now they are expecting that Maharashtra govt may come to their rescue as the Assembly session is in progress.
However, the state Chief Minister Prithviraj Chavan said, as reported by NDTV, "Nothing can be done in Campa Cola case. Law will take its own course. Campa Cola's residents need to vacate illegal flats. The flats will be demolished soon."
Meanwhile melody queen Lata Mangeshkar, who owns a flat in the society has come into the support of residents who have to vacate their flats.
Her tweet says, "Namaskar.campa cola compound case ke baare mein main Maharashtra government se ek hi baat kehena chahti hun ki yaha ke makan todne se hazaaro log beghar ho jaayenge jisme kai bacche aur budho'n ka samavesh hai. Aaj tak 3 vyaktiyo'n ki jaanein is sadme se jaa chuki hai. Builders ki galti ki saza aam nagriko'n ko bhugatni pade ye anyaay hai.”
