Union minister hails DBR housing plan as a role model for other States
- Vijay Goel has all praise for KCR
Hyderabad: Union Minister for Youth Affairs and Sports Vijay Goel has appreciated functioning of the TRS government led by K Chandrasekhar Rao.
After visiting Erravelli village in Siddipet district, where he inspected double bed room houses which were recently handed over to the poor, he said on Tuesday the double bed room scheme launched by KCR meant for poor and middle class people is a role model for other States and a model for Central government.
With the launch of this scheme, Chief Minister Chandrasekhar Rao made an impossible scheme a possible one, the Union minister said, adding that he will bring it to the notice of the Prime Minister for possible implementation across the country.
Vijay Goel also thanked KCR for supporting demonetization decision of the Prime Minister to curb black money and corruption in the country. He also visited Lakkavaram lake near Warangal.
Earlier, at a meeting with Goel, KCR urged him to set up a regional games centre in Hyderabad. Goel has readily accepted the suggestion.
In a statement Goel said: “I met Telangana Chief Minister Chandrasekhar Rao yesterday (Monday) and came to know about Erravelli village. Then I came here where 600 houses were constructed for the poor at a low cost. I felt very happy. Like Prime Minister Narendra Modi is working hard in the country for the welfare of the poor especially the common man, a similar effort I found here. People are happy with the houses. It built a confidence among the people. I saw this community hall. I say KCR garu and others are doing a wonderful job here.
“These 600 houses built at a low cost of Rs 504,000, in which there is some contribution from the Central government and the rest is borne by the State. I understand that the State government is taking this programme forward. More interesting aspect of this village is its neatness and cleanliness as well education. I understand that water problem is also being solved. I also want to congratulate KCR garu for supporting the demonetization scheme of the PM. The CM and Telangana State have fully supported it. The CM told me that a resolution was also passed in the State Legislative Assembly in this regard. The CM also informed that 81 villages in the State are being made cashless. This is a very great step. If both the Centre and State work together, there will be faster development.” –NSS
