Mangeshkar took to micro-blogging site Twitter on Monday and appealed to the Maharashtra government not to punish the residents for builders’ mistakes.

“I just want to say one thing to Maharashtra government about Campa Cola case. Many people including children and elderly people will become homeless if the houses are razed,” Mangeshkar posted on twitter.

“Three people have died because of the stress. It is injustice that the residents are facing trouble because of mistakes made by builders," she added.

The residents of the Campa Cola housing society face the threat of losing their homes with the Supreme Court on Tuesday rejecting their plea seeking a stay on the demolition of their flats till the court decides on their curative petition, which is to come up for hearing next month.

The curative petition, quoting information received through RTI, says the Municipal Corporation of Greater Mumbai and the state had decided to regularize the illegal construction in 1985.

As many as 102 illegal flats in the seven buildings of the society are to be razed by the MCGM.
