AURANGABAD: The Centre will build 2.40 lakh kilometer-long roads across the country by the end of 2019, Union Minister Chaudhary Birender Singh said here today.

"2.40 lakh kilometer long roads would be constructed across the country by the end of 2019 and every homeless will be provided home by that time," the Union Minister of Rural Development, Panchayati Raj, Drinking Water and Sanitation told reporters here.

He said that deposits worth around Rs 36,000 crore have been received in accounts opened under the government's flagship financial inclusion programme Pradhan Mantri Jan Dhan Yojana (PMJDY).

The minister expressed confidence that there would be a marked improvement on the water front in the coming five years.
