HYDERABAD:Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao on Thursday visited the underconstruction housing complex at IDH colony, where the government is constructing houses for the poor.
Going around the complex, Rao expressed happiness over the pace at which the houses are being constructed and said that he would inaugurate the constructed houses on June 2, the day on which the state was formed.
Rao was accompanied by ministers Talasani Srinivas Yadav, T Harish Rao, Nayani Narasimha Reddy and A Indrakaran Reddy and GHMC special officer Somesh Kumar.
The government is constructing 396 houses in G+2 buildings in 32 blocks. Each house coming up in an area of 580 sft, will have two bedrooms, a hall, kitchen and two bathrooms. Each house would cost around Rs 7.9 lakh.
When Rao enquired with women beneficiaries about the houses, the latter told him that the houses lacked shelves for keeping household articles.
Rao immediately asked the officials to construct shelves in kitchen, bedrooms and hall.
It may be recalled that Rao visited the IDH colony earlier and was disturbed over the pathetic conditions in which the locals were living there. Rao assured them that his government would construct houses for the poor free of cost and laid foundation stone on October 3 last year. The construction is nearing completion and the complex would be inaugurated on June 2.
