Odisha Government Failed in Rural Housing Scheme under PMAY

The Union Minister of State for Rural Development depressed after receiving the progress report of rural housing scheme under Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana. According to the information, the Union Minister of State for Rural Development Saturday rejected the state government’s claim of constructing ten lakh houses in the last three years.

The Union Minister, who reviewed the progress of the Central government’s rural housing schemes under Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana (PMAY), Pradhan Mantri Gram Sadak Yojana (PMGSY) and Mahatma Gandhi National Rural Employment Guarantee Act (MGNREGA), expressed displeasure at the slow progress of these flagship programmes.

The Ram Kripal Yadav said that the state government has failed in constructing housing for poor in Odisha despite normal fund flow from the Centre. At present about 70,000 houses are yet to be completed under Indira Awas Yojana scheme.

In reality, the government has constructed only 1.81 lakh houses under Biju Awas Yojna and the rest houses are built from the funding of the Central government. Odisha’s Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik is from the Biju Janata Dal, which holds 117 of 147 seats in the state Assembly. Yadav said the Odisha government is misleading the people.
