Housing policy for BPL families in Jharkhand soon: Munda
Ranchi: Jharkhand government will soon bring
a housing policy to the people residing below poverty line,
Chief Minister Arjun Munda said on Tuesday.
"The government is committed to providing housing to
every person living under below poverty line ... vendors will
also be given space to sell their commodities in a legally
accommodated place," Munda told a news conference here.
Stating that a three-member high-level committee headed
by Development Commissioner Debasish Gupta is giving final
touches to a `holistic policy` on rehabilitation, Munda said
the government was "sensitive" towards the requirements of the
people and their housing needs.
Besides the Development Commissioner-headed Committee
report, Munda said, the Urban Development department had
already prepared a separate draft to bring an ordinance that
would also help people having slight deviation in their
The legal department would go through the draft before it
gets the cabinet sanction, he added.
Asked whether the "holistic policy" would cover those BPL
families residing in the land of public sector units like
Heavy Engineering Corporation, Central Coalfields Limited and
Bharat Coking Coal Limited in the state, he said the policy
would cover all such people in the state.
Munda’s assertion came amidst widespread protests by
various political parties following the anti-encroachment
drive taken up by the administration in the state following
the high court’s direction to implement its orders passed
between 2003 and 2006.
