New Delhi, May 2:
Days after connecting with farmers in Punjab and Maharashtra, Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi on Saturday met a delegation of home-buyers in Delhi/NCR to hear out their woes, including untimely delivery of projects.
Gandhi, who met over 100 representatives of home-buyers for an hour at the Congress headquarters here, heard their grievances about delayed possession of flats and fake promises made by builders.
“I learned something new today. I thought only farmers and tribal people are suffering due to land issues. But the same issue extends to the middle-class as well, which is equally being exploited by removing transparency (clause from the real estate bill),” Gandhi told the media here.
“Home-buyers are promised a certain super area…a specific time of completion of the project… beautiful view. But what they get (from the builder) in the end is totally different,” he added.
Gandhi assured the home-buyers that the Congress stood by the middle class, just as “we stand by the farmers, tribals, and the labourers”. (IANS)
