Kejriwal promises Pucca houses if voted to power


New Delhi: Aam Admi party chief Arvind Kejriwal promised Pucca houses for slum dwellers in Delhi and free hold rights to the lease holders at affordable rates as his party provided its election manifesto for the 15 lakh residents of the 45 resettlement colonies in the national capital.

While addressing a Public meeting in Trilokpuri of East Delhi, he said that if voted to power his government would simplify the ownership transferring procedures of plots.

Speaking at the meeting, he also attacked the Congress terming it ‘anti-poor’ and blamed the BJP for ‘razing the slums’.

He said, “The previous government had made the provision of providing free hold rights on the payment of Rs 60,000 for original allotees and Rs 12.5 lakh (non-original allotees). I have proposed to slash the amount so that it can be afforded by all.”

He has also raised question over Prime Minister’s assurance that pucca houses will be provided for the slum dwellers.

He said that BJP is demolishing slums in Rangpuri, Wazirpur and many other places but has not provided any dwelling place for the people whose house have been demolished.
