Hyderabad, December 27: Telangana Chief Minister K. Chandrasekhar Rao is keen to go to leader of opposition K. Jana Reddy’s house for lunch.
He told the state assembly that in the past there was a good tradition of the chief minister visiting the house of leader of opposition for lunch or dinner.
KCR said he wants to revive the tradition by visiting Jana Reddy’s house. His remarks provided some lighter moments in the House.
KCR said this during the debate on double-bed room housing scheme for poor. He announced waiver of Rs.3,920 crore loan arrears of the beneficiaries of various housing schemes launched in the past.
The chief minister said his government so far sanctioned 2, 60,000 houses under double bedroom housing scheme. He said tenders were finalized for 14,224 houses and 1,217 houses were constructed.
KCR said at present 9,588 houses were in construction stage at various places in the state.
He spoke about the corruption in housing schemes in the past. Relling out the statistics, he said by the time Telangana state was formed, 43,29,124 houses were constructed for the economically weaker sections in the state. “If this be true, there would not have been any family left in the State without any house! Therefore there would not have been any need for construction of any new house for the poor! But the ground realities are different.”
