About 31 lakh homes granted to poor in just three years: Andhra Pradesh housing minister

AMARAVATI: Housing minister Jogi Ramesh has said that no state government in the country has taken up the construction of the houses for the poor as initiated by the YSRCP government in Andhra Pradesh.

He said that the state government had granted about 31 lakh houses in the last three years and construction picked up pace in almost all the Jagananna housing colonies. He said that TDP has unleashed a false campaign as it was unable to digest the facts.

Ramesh said that Naidu had once again exposed himself that he had been anti-poor. He said that Naidu would never tolerate poor getting benefitted and taking the ladder of economic growth. He said that Naidu had always worked for the corporate companies and realtors and there was no surprise for Naidu to get frustrated after seeing the progress of poor during YS Jagan Mohan Reddy regime.

“Centre had not granted any PMAY houses during 2019-20 due to Covid-19. It has sanctioned 1.79 lakh houses for 2020-21 for which chief minister laid foundation stone in Visakhapatnam in April. About 70,000 houses were nearing completion,” he said.

He added that there was no truth that state government could complete just five houses in the last three years. He said that the union minister’s reply in parliament with regard to the five houses pertained to the TDP regime. He said that Naidu and his media houses were unable to see the progress of the houses being built in the Jagananna housing colonies.

He further said that they have already completed 3 lakh houses of the 18 lakh sanctioned by the Centre in the last three years and remaining were also nearing completion.

“We are going to win all the 175 seats in the state thanks to the welfare programmes initiated by the chief minister Reddy as people are with us. Naidu is worried about the party’s prospects in the next elections as he is unable to gain support even from his own party cadres,” he further said.

He wanted to know as to why Naidu could not grant even a single house to the poor during his five-year long stint. He asked the ‘Naidu-owned media’ to visit the Jagananna colonies and witness the progress. He dared Naidu and former minister Yanamala Ramakrishnudu to face CBI probe against the irregularities taken place during their regime.
