Make Sure Every Eligible Beneficiary Gets A House: Andhra CM

 - Sakshi Post

Chief Minister YS Jagan Mohan Reddy on Thursday interacted with the newly appointed Joint Collectors (Housing) across the state for the effective implementation of Pedalandariki Illu scheme.

During the meeting, the Chief Minister said that ‘Pedalandariki illu’ initiative is a massive housing project taken up by the state government, which was never before done by any government or any state in the country. Almost over 28 lakh houses are being constructed in 17000 layouts, where some of the layouts are of the size of municipalities. He directed the officials to complete the houses within the time frame. 

Besides these, the Chief Minister told the officials to focus on providing housesites to all the eligible people within 90 days of applying on a saturation basis, by maintaining complete transparency and zero corruption. He said that there shouldn’t be a situation where only 10 of 100 eligible people get benefitted and the officials should take the responsibility in constructing houses for all those receiving house sites. The government is very much determined to provide welfare to every eligible person on a saturation basis and thus with the help of village secretariats and volunteers, we are able to take governance to the doorstep of the beneficiary, said the Chief Minister.

He said that the colonies should not become slums under any circumstances and must be equipped with good infrastructure facilities, which is a top priority as the government is spending over Rs 84,000 crore. For infrastructure alone Rs 34,000 crore is being spent. The Chief Minister instructed the officials to maintain transparency  and ensure quality in every work, without resorting to any corruption. If quality is compromised, problems will arise and it is very much needed to proceed with an effective plan, he added.

Special Chief Secretary Housing Ajay Jain, Chief Secretary to the Chief Minister Praveen Prakash, Secretary Salmon Arokhya Raj, Additional Secretary Muthyalaraju, AP State Housing Corporation MD Narayana Bharat Gupta and other senior officials were present.
