    • To: Maverick Holdings, Nandeesh, Customer Service, Customer Service, Vaidyanath , and Mahesh, Legal ManagerSubject: Step out of the Ejipura PPPLetter: Greetings, As owners of the popular Garuda mall in Bangalore, Maverick Holdings has a responsibility towards its customers and the citizens of Bangalore. More than 6000 people were thrown out of their homes in EWS quarters, Ejipura, Bangalore. They helplessly watched as bulldozers demolished their houses to make way for a new shopping mall. The land in question, however, was originally allotted and legally meant for building houses for the economically weaker sections (EWS). No rehabilitation has been done by either Maverick or the BBMP and thousands of people have been out on the streets, braving the cold, without shelter, water or sanitation. Many of them have lost their income as they are not able to go to work, children are not able to go to school and seniors citizens are suffering. The people living in Ejipura are lawful residents and the Government has issued them biometric cards, BBMP ID cards, Voter IDs and Ration Cards. However, they were not even consulted before a decision was made to commercially develop the land. I think this is unfair and this needs to stop. As owners of the popular Garuda mall in Bangalore, Maverick Holdings has a responsibility towards its customers and the citizens of Bangalore. We also demand that Maverick step out of this atrocious deal and cancels the agreement to build a commercial complex on land earmarked for EWS quarters.

    • Name Location Date CommentAkshay Shankar India 2013-03-14 To: Maverick Holdings Im signing this petition on behalf of the people of EWS quarters who are being bullied out of their rights as Indian citizens. I am part of a whole generation who have seen the original Garuda Mall(McGrath Road) become part of the social fabric of this city and I can guarantee you that if you do not stop to address the concerns of the people who have been displaced, your loyal patrons will become your greatest dissidents overnight. All we ask is for you to act responsibly as fellow stakeholders in this city. This is your chance to step up. If you choose to Ignore this appeal, please prepare for what the citizens of Bangalore will do to stand up for their peoples rights.

Most of them are Tamilians, is the primary concern, and not so important citizens of this state. If its was a MUSLIMS occupation in this same location, will the BBMP dare to do it. It so shame that the BBMP cant dare to take down / demolish just a wall structure next to BALDWINS Boys school on HOSUR road just near to Johnson Market, a MOSQUEs external wall, which could pave way wider, leading to towards Brigade road from FORUM mall in Koramangala & vice versa, because of FEAR, as they are MUSLIMS. Here its no one, as we are Tamilians, no INTEGRITY amougst our ownselves, like the Malayalee, Kannadigas of the Telugu sections, which are all the disected bretherens of Tamizh; No one will support / hear our voice, unless or otherwise, we get together to act, for the attrocities metted towards local Tamilians population.
