DLF's high-rise plan near Rashtrapati Bhavan draws flak from politicos

New Delhi, March 04 (ANI): Real estate giant DLF's proposed high-rise residential project, barely a kilometre from Rashtrapati Bhavan, is on hold. The CBI will look into DLF's high-rise plan. The Urban Development Ministry approved DLF's high-rise residential project worth Rs 10,000 crore just one km from Rashtrapati Bhavan keeping aside the security concerns. Last November, the CBI registered a preliminary enquiry (PE) against officials of the urban development (UD) ministry for allegedly favouring DLF, giving it permission to construct the building. The PE was registered following a reference from the Central Vigilance Commission (CVC), which received a complaint. Meanwhile, terming the plan as violation of laws, political leaders condemned it.
