Taking a barbed swipe at Prime Minister Narendra Modi Uttar Pradesh CM said that people must have houses to live first, then only toilets can be constructed.
"People talk about toilets being constructed. But there needs to be a house before you can even think of constructing a toilet," the Samajwadi Party was quoted as saying in TOI. Addressing real estate developers on the inaugural day of the two-day UPCON 2014 conclave in Agra, UP CM said that his government is "leaving no stone unturned" and is trying its level best in providing cheap home loans for the poor so that everyone has a home to live.
Batting for the common man and the poor, he also expressed his concern over the highly priced houses being built by property developers which are not in reach of everybody’s pocket.
Encouraging the builders to construct low-cost homes, he said, "You need to build more homes for the poor. You need to consider their financial capacity and build homes accordingly."
"Samajwadi Party initially believed in the 'roti kapda sasti and dawai padai mufti' adage. But owning a house is as crucial. Our party is aiming to provide house for all but the scheme cannot be implemented if developers don't cooperate with us," Akhilesh said.
Akhilesh Yadav also announced development of an inner ring road in Agra that will connect both the Yamuna Expressway and the Lucknow Expressway to the Taj Mahal.
Not only this, he also announced that four special mandis for the farmers will be set up along the same ring road.
