Criticising PM Narendra Modi for approving amendment of the Real Estate (Regulation and Development) Bill, 2013 that was brought by the previous UPA government to protect the interest of buyers, state Congress president Bharatsinh Solanki said here on Tuesday that the Modi government at the Centre was working for builders and not buyers who were mostly from the middle class.

Solanki alleged that Modi government was changing all the earlier laws as a favour that was being returned to those who invested in BJP’s election funds for 2014 Lok Sabha polls. He said that as many as 118 amendments had been introduced in the real estate bill, allegedly at the behest of the builders’ lobby. Because of the provisions in the 2013 real estate law, Solanki said that there was a hope that buyers would be protected against malpractices by builders but now all their hopes had now crashed.
