Dream of every family owning a house by 2022: Modi
PM Narendra Modi today said he dreams of every family having a home of its own by 2022 when the nation will celebrate 75 years of independence.
The homes built under the Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana (PMAY) are of high quality and nobody had to pay a single rupee bribe, he said addressing a gathering at Jujwa village in Gujarat's Valsad town.
Modi says PMAY houses built with families' efforts
Mothers happy as they didn't have to pay bribe: Modi
"In 2022, there should be no family which does not have a house of its own," Modi said.
Speaking about his interaction with beneficiaries of the housing scheme through video conferencing, he said, "Mothers and sisters could say with satisfaction that they got homes according to rules and they did not have to pay a single rupee bribe."
Family decided how house will be built: Modi
"The government has given money for the homes built under PMAY, but along with it this, homes have been built with the sweat of the family," Modi said.
"The family decided how will the house be, what material will be used and how will it be made. We did not believe in contractors but the family," he said.
