Jagtial: Social Affairs Minister Koppula Eashwar said on Thursday that enabling the poor to live with dignity in two-bedroom houses was Chief Minister K Chandrashekhar Rao’s main goal in implementing the 2BHK scheme.
Speaking after the inauguration of 65 double bedroom houses in Nukapalli of Malyala mandal, Eashwar said that although there is a huge demand for the double bedroom houses from the public, construction has been delayed for various reasons. Besides the non-availability of land, contractors did not show up to build houses. Following a huge demand from the public, the Chief Minister was going to launch a new scheme under which the government will sanction Rs five lakh to people with their own land to build houses, he said.
Stating that the launch of the new program has been delayed due to financial issues due to the Covid pandemic, he said it will be launched soon. “Last year, Chandrashekhar Rao allocated Rs 11,000 crore for the housing project. Steps have been taken to develop villages across the state,” he said, adding that drinking water was also provided to every house. Nurseries, dumps, tractors and cemeteries have also been set up in all the villages. Green cover has been improved in the state through the Haritha Haram program which has taken over considerably.
