The Delhi High Court's decision of legalizing the colonies only for poor has hurt Sainik Farm Residents. "The Delhi government's regularization of illegal colonies is meant for the poor and not for the rich who live in palatial bungalows," Chief Justice, Mr. Ajit Prakash Shah said. The court was hearing a Public Interest Litigation (PIL) seeking a direction to the Municipal Corporation of Delhi for immediate action to stop illegal construction going on in the plush south Delhi colony. Earlier, advocate Mr. Rajeev Awasthi said that ‘every brick in the area’ was unauthorized. As of now, the court has posted the case for further hearing on August 27, 2008.
