- In August 2022, he experienced great distress when the Twin Towers located at the ‘Supertech Emerald Court’ housing society in Sector 93A, Noida, were demolished. In an interview, he talked about this and said,
As per the UP Apartment Act, 1975 and UP Apartment Act, 2010, a developer goes to an authority to take approval. In terms of violation of the Act, we didn’t violate any of them. When these plans were getting passed, the Apartment Act was not adopted by the Noida Authority. And it was not just for our project, it was for all approvals in the area. Between 2010 and 2014, no one was taking consent on the Apartment Act. There were no special favours given to us. Whatever everyone else was getting, we also got the same.”
