Accusing Aam Aadmi Party’s (AAP) national convener and Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, Leader of Opposition, Vijender Gupta on Friday said that the Kejriwal has deliberately “thwarted” the implementation of the Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojna (PMAY) in a planned and sustained manner over the last four years.
Gupta said CM is acting out of political malice towards the Prime Minister and thereby, denying the golden opportunity provided by him for JJ dwellers of Delhi. “Under PMAY, four lakh households living in JJ clusters of Delhi were to be provided financial assistance of Rs. 1.5 lakh for each household but unfortunately, Kejriwal did not let the poor households of Delhi to avail the opportunity,” alleged Gupta.
Kejriwal even did not let the Central Government sponsored ‘Ayushman Bharat’, Delhi-Meerut rapid regional transport system, Metro Phase 4 to be implemented in Delhi despite their vast benefits to poor segment of the capital city,” he said.
Gupta further said that Kejriwal started obstructing the Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojna since the States were asked by the Centre to implement it in 2015.
