Prime Minister Narendra Modi interacted with the beneficiaries of Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana. Yesterday, he had written on his Twitter account, “Lakhs of people have got a house due to the Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana. This scheme is central to our endeavour of providing a house to every Indian”. He interacted with the beneficiaries through video conferencing and said that it was wonderful communicating with them. He also noted that because of the interaction, there can be an apt discussion about the various aspects of the scheme, including the areas in which it csan be improved. He noted that everyone dream’s of owning a house in his or her life.
And because the life of a person becomes better if they have a home of their own, the Yojana isn’t just about putting up bricks and mortar in place, but it also offers a better quality of life and brings those dreams to life. The NDA government has made the project one of its priorities, he noted, and if everything goes as planned, every citizen of India is going to have a house till 2022, when the country completes its 75 years since independence.
He said that the Yojana is trying to get rid of corruption, and middlemen, so that people can get their homes without much difficulties. He mentioned, how the houses are being built with the help of new technology, and this could be beneficial for the poor people. The main aim of the project is to make sure that women, Divyang sisters and brothers, people from the communities SC, ST, OBC and Minority communities get houses. PMAY has also given employment to many people, and as their skills are being refined, it is also an advantage to the work being done. Narendra Modi talked to a woman named, Phulmati Baghel, who has acquired a house from the project and said that it has changed her life.
Lakhs of people have got a house due to the Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana. This scheme is central to our endeavour of providing a house to every Indian.
Tomorrow morning, at 9:30 AM, I look forward to interacting with beneficiaries of the PMAY, via video conferencing.
