Hyderabad, Oct 02 (UNI) Andhra Pradesh Housing Minister B Satyanarayana today denied the charge of CPI(M) state secretary B V Raghavulu that 40 per cent of the ineligible people were being given houses in the Indiramma Housing scheme in the state.
In a letter to Raghuvulu, a copy of which was released to the press here, he said the government was implementing the Indiramma housing scheme in a transparant manner.
Stating that the government was providing houses to all the poor without any discrimination, he said the officials were visiting all the villages to identify the poor people, who were left out earlier to provide houses to them.
The government had taken up the 'Intinta Indiramma' programme only to identify the poor people and selecting the people in the presence of public in the villages.
Refuting the charge of Mr Raghuvulu that the government was selecting people to those who had own house sites, he said under the first phase of Indiramma programme, the government had allotted house sites to 4.25 lakh people in the state.
Instead of levelling allegation, the minister urged the CPI(M) leader to bring to the government's notice with specific instances so that the govenrment would rectify if any mistakes in identifying the poor people.
He said the government had no objection to consider the suggestions of all political parties in implementing the scheme in a big way for the benefit of the poor.
