No proposal yet from Delhi govt to construct PMAY houses
The Union Housing and Urban Affairs Ministry Tuesday alleged that the AAP government has not sent any proposal under the Centre’s Pradhan MantriAwasYojana (Urban) to construct houses in Delhi. Responding to the ministry’s accusation, a Delhi government spokesperson said the AamAadmi Party (AAP) dispensation has its own housing scheme – Mukhyamantri Awas Yojana – and a survey for the same is currently underway.
The development may become another flashpoint between the Arvind Kejriwal dispensation and the BJP-led central government.
The ministry is mandated to implement PMAY (U), a flagship programme of the Modi government. The ministry provides financial assistance to those constructing houses under the Mission.
