Some residents of the Grove Diamond Housing Scheme are complaining that Chairman of the Neighbourhood Democratic Council, Omar Khan, is squatting. They have since written to President Bharrat Jagdeo, PPP General Secretary Donald Ramotar, as well as the Housing Minister Irfaan Ali, in a bid to correct the situation.
“The said land was to build a road to link the Diamond Scheme to the main access road,” according to the residents in their complaint
According to the residents in 2010 Khan sold his house and land situated at Lot 187 Grove Squatting Area for approximately $6M
“Our former President, Mrs. Janet Jagan, gave the Chairman Mr. Omar Khan $100,000 to purchase the land at 187 Grove Squatting Area which he sold.”
According to the residents Khan also acquired four house lots in the Diamond New Scheme for his children and three of the children sold out their house lots.
“Khan is now writing to the Minister of Housing through the PPP District Chairman and Mr. Clinton Collymore among others to acquire the reserve…A building has already been erected on the reserve.”
The residents are objecting to the illegality and calling on the relevant authorities to demolish this building.
“People like Omar Khan who is a staunch PPP activist should not break the law.”
This newspaper understands that the Central Housing and Planning Authority has since moved in and has given Khan a deadline to demolish the structure.
