Need to end corruption, say builders
Developers organise peace march to protest against suicide by Credai member
Cr e d a i We s t e r n U P organised a peace march as a mark of solidarity with Suraj Parmar, president of Thane chapter of Maharashtra Chamber of Housing I ndustry ( CredaiMCHI) who ended his l i f e this week. He is said to have alleged in his suicide note that he had been facing “harassment” by various government departments and was tired of repeated demands for bribes. More than 100 developers participated in the protest march and handed over a memoran- dum to Kiran S, SSP Noida; NP Singh, DM Noida; Rama Raman, chair man Gautam Budh Nagar and UP chief minister Akhilesh Yadav.
“It is very shocking to know that a cruel and inept system took the life of a renowned realty icon. He paid the cost by giving up his l ife for an inefficient and corrupt system. Credai and its members closed their offices to protest against the widespread corrupt practices in the system. Our protest march is a plea to the government that they create an environment of trust and cooperation. We hope that this kind of incident would never ever occur again and that government will take strict actions to overcome the weaknesses of our system,” says Manoj Gaur, president Credai NCR.
The developers’ march was held at Credai Wester n UP office located in Noida Sec 63.
