New Delhi, Sept 10: The United Progressive Alliance (UPA) government has changed the development paradigm in India by enacting rights-based legislation, Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi said on Tuesday.
At a function held here to confer freehold rights to residents of 45 resettlement colonies, Rahul Gandhi said giving rights-based legislation was a guarantee of progress.
"In the last 10 years, we have changed the development paradigm. We are giving rights (to people)," he said.
Rahul Gandhi said giving rights-based legislation was a guarantee of progress.
The decision to give freehold rights is expected to provide relief to 1.5 million people in Delhi.
It is being seen as a major election sop by the Congress government in the city ahead of assembly elections later this year.
