HYDERABAD: It was a dream come true for poor tribal families on Saturday when 176 newly-constructed double-bedroom houses (2BHK) at Singam Cheruvu Thanda in Uppal constituency were handed over to the beneficiaries by Minister for Municipal Administration and Urban Development (MAUD) KT Rama Rao on Saturday. The total cost of the houses is `13.64 crore.

There was a festive atmosphere at Singam Cheruvu and the residents erupted in joy, dancing to drumbeats and singing traditional songs. Banam Tariya, a daily wage-earner, lived with his wife and four children in a hut that lacked toilet and proper ventilation. “Our woes have come to an end and we can now lead a comfortable life. We thank the government for their warm-hardheartedness,” he said in a choked voice. Like Banam Tariya, Tejawat Ravi, who runs a small fancy stores and has a family of nine members, was also living in the slum. His happiness knew no bounds after receiving the keys to the house.    

Redya Dhanji, a daily wage-earner who married recently, heaped praises on the minister for transforming their lives.

These 176 houses were built in 11 blocks with G+3 pattern and a plinth area of 560 sq ft for each unit. The minister also inaugurated and laid foundation stones for civic work to the tune of `234 crore in Uppal Assembly Constituency.

Addressing the gathering here, KT Rama Rao said the housing scheme was taken up for 95 per cent of tribal people living at Singam Cheruvu with all basic amenities such as CC roads, drains, drinking water facilities, underground drainage, park and playgrounds, composting units, LED lighting and other facilities at par with gated community.
