Telangana is the only State in the country to ensure that the poorer sections live in dignity with the implementation of the 2BHK housing scheme that comes as a complete package with spacious rooms, kitchen, washroom, drinking water taps, among other facilities. “The beauty of the scheme is that it comes absolutely free of cost, with the beneficiaries not required to spend even a single rupee,” Municipal Administration and Urban Development Minister KTR said on Wednesday.
The Minister challenged Congress and BJP leaders to prove if such scheme was in place in any state being ruled by their parties or just stop criticising Chief Minister K. Chandrasekhar Rao who had designed the scheme. “Your baseless criticism of the CM has no meaning and will not affect the government’s functioning,” he said while speaking at a programme organised on the occasion.
The entire credit for this dignity housing scheme, which has been taken up in a big way across the State, goes to Chief Minister K Chandrashekhar Rao who conceived the idea and implemented it, he said, and assured those who had not been allotted houses so far would get it eventually. “There is no need for people who have not yet been allotted to be dejected since it is only a matter of time before they become the proud owners of a house, probably within a year,” he said, addressing the beneficiaries after inaugurating double bedroom houses in Boppapur, Gollapalli and Yellareddypet mandal headquarters in Rajanna-Sircilla district.
