I would suggest the primary choice to first try as much as possible to speak to the HR or some Managerial level person, so that later on at least you stay on good terms with the company, if at all you do end up continuing working for that company.

If you have already done that and vexed of it, then I would suggest that you can send them a legal notice that since they didn't adhere to the offer letter, you are giving them 15 days time to give you joining failing which you will leave the company and also sue them for the damage that they have caused so far (but be aware that your offer letter doesn't have any terms to say that the joining date can get delayed in the scenario of untoward situations. It would help, if you could mail your offer letter to me at, I could give it a read and then confirm, if you have a claim or not)

Send them a legal notice
