Can a citizen be joined as third party in a suit against municipality?

Posted by Vikram Patil

Dear Experts,
An Institution is constructing a building encroaching upon the open space of government land given for government residential scheme (Hudco). Municipality has passed the construction plan and gave the permission for this construction. But because of complaint of some citizens and the order of higher authorities, the municipality was forced to give the notice of demolition to that institution. Meantime the said institution filed a civil suit for injunction against municipality which was collusive (The chairman of the Instituion is also the leader of ruling party in municipality. It was done so to avoid the action against the construction. Municipality did not give reply to interim injuncion application so the injunction was granted in favour of the institution. Now my question is whether those citizens can ask to join themselves in that suit ? The said citizens have documents to show that there is clear encroachment in the open space of govt. land alloted for Hudco scheme.
