The residents of DPS Cooperative Group Housing Society at Sector 4, Dwarka, New Delhi are worried as they have found some white powder mysteriously spread all through the Society premises.

While the residents have inquired from the Society’s managing committee (MC)* about the sudden spread of white material which they fear may be dangerous to their health and lives, the MC has not yet responded.

The anxiety of the people living in the DPS Housing Society may be genuine, as the Society has increasingly become a virtual conflict zone where most residents are at daggers drawn with each other.

Currently, the residents of the DPS Housing Society are experiencing a torrid time, as the MC of the Society is embroiled in multiple police cases, altercations between different groups of people, and serious corruption charges on the MC members which are being investigated by the top law-enforcement agencies of the country.

As the successive managing committees (MCs) of the Society prefer to work in an opaque and shady manner, they have been threatening the honest people who oppose their corrupt practices.

Now, the residents fear that the white powder sprinkling in the Society may be a part of the ongoing sinister designs of the MC members to harm those who oppose them.

Innocent residents who live with their kids are particularly worried, as they complain that the MC is using the white substance secretly without informing them.

A resident, for example, sent a group email Friday addressed to MC secretary M.N. Sampath Kumar inquiring about the material being spread in the building and how it will affect people’s health and safety.

However, the MC members have preferred to stay silent because they usually work secretly and in a dictatorial manner, ignoring the people who question their wrongdoings.

“…my complaint to you as member is under your charge: unknown persons have entered and performed unknown acts with unknown materials in public / private spaces of Society and no member has any clue about it,” a member said in his complaint to M.N. Sampath Kumar who is MC secretary of DPS Housing Society.

The resident member added that if the Society MC did not respond in a week, the members (residents) will formally complain about this secret operation to those public bodies and law-enforcement agencies which address these concerns.

Similarly, another resident has raised doubts about the MC’s intentions. “I feel that we all should have been communicated on the intent behind the activity,” he wrote to all members in his email, adding that “carrying out activities secretly (like this) is eventually going to shake residents’ trust on MC.”

But once again, mum’s the word for the MC while its secret operations in the Society are already taking a toll on the living conditions which are going from bad to worse as well as the value of the flats which is declining.

Property experts believe that the continuous fights between different groups of people at the DPS Housing Society and the inability of the different MCs to run the Society work honestly will bring down the prices of flats.

Amid these conflicts and government inquiries on the MC, it is believed that the prices of flats at the DPS Housing Society have already fallen drastically. Also, most new buyers will be reluctant to buy flat in the DPS Housing Society, which has virtually become a disputed territory.

Residents demand that the government must throw out the current MC and appoint an administrator to run the Society’s affairs smoothly so that people could live peacefully.
