Close on wheels of much published Colgate scandal , affordable housing scandal has surfaced in Haryana bordering national capital.Haryana Govt. headed by Bhupinder Sinbgh Hooda has come out with affordable housing policy claiming that it will provide affordable housing to people in Gurgaon and other towns of the State.
For this scheme applications have been invited from the prospective builders and licences will be given on first come first basis.. Following the pattern of coal gate,chosen colonizers were tipped much in advance about the scheme and concerned officials were reportedly directed to put applications of such colonizers on priority. Under this police colonizers have been given number of concessions in form of remission of internal development and external development charges etc.In turn they will provide house at cost of Rs. four thousand per square feet in Gurgaon.Highly placed sources told that even applications for licences are accepted on directions from top .Government will ensure sale of such houses.
Commenting on claim of Govt.of affordable housing an official told that had Chief Minister Bhupinder Singh Hooda , been so worried about the interests of end users then Haryana Urban Development Authority would have come out with new sectors in the state.Instead of developing new sectors Hooda after taking over as chief minister granted licences to colonizers for developing housing schemes putting the end users to great disadvantage. Hooda is watching the interests of powerful colonizer lobby and it is jokingly said that Hooda Govt. is Govt. of colonizers, by the colonizers and for the colonizers. Family members of about two dozen legislators including Chief Minister are leading colonizers working all over the state particularly in Gurgaon and other areas bordering the National capital.Even in Rohtak. home town of Hooda , collector rate of registration of sale deeds in sectors developed by the Haryana Urban Development Authority are increased manifold several times forcing the end users to buy plots in colonies developed by the colonizers.
