Aiming to provide house to every Indian by the year 2022, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday launched his flagship housing scheme ‘Pradhan Mantri Gramin Awas Yojna’ in Agra. Designed entirely for the rural masses, the ambitious scheme aims to provide affordable houses to all those living below the poverty line by the year 2022.
Addressing a rally after the launch, Modi said that his government is dedicated to poor people and all its scheme is for them. “We launched Pradhan Mantri Jan Dhan Yojna so that people can open bank account. Today I launched Pradhan Mantri Gramin Awas Yojna so that poor people can have a house,” said Modi.
The prime minister also launched Pradhan Mantri Ujjwala Yojana to provide gas connection and stove to every household.
Modi also attacked opposition leaders for protesting against government’s demoentisation move saying those involved in corrupt activities are having tough time. Without mentioning Mamata Banerjee, Modi said “Some leaders are raising fingers on me by talking about loss of lives due to demonetisation. I want to remind them many people committed suicide after they lose their money in chit fund scam.”
