Early this week, Gujarat Congress leaders made an announcement that when they come to power in the state they will provide cheaper houses to homeless women in price range of Rs 70,000 to Rs 1,00,000.
While the assembly elections are less than six months away, the Gujarat Congress today started distribution of application forms for cheap houses in the poor people dominated areas of Ahmedabad, Vadodara and Rajkot.
While in Ahmedabad there was a traffic jam for two hours, in Rajkot and Vadodara there was a mad rush of women to take the forms.
Congress leaders asked the women that today was the first day of form distribution, but the distribution is going to continue in future too.
It should be mentioned that ahead of the 2007 Gujarat assembly election, the Gujarat Congress had promised free color TVs to poor people if elected to power. However such application form system was not put in practice for color TVs. This time, Congress is apparently trying to create a buzz around its offer. Congress is attempting to align the voters through distribution of forms for a scheme that will see the light of the day only if party is elected to power in Gujarat.
Chief Minister Narendra Modi’s remark
Chief Minister Narendra Modi while speaking at a gathering of women in Gandhinagar today said that ahead of the election some ‘ek ka teen’ players have come out with fake promises and they have started fooling the women. They are in power in neighboring Selvas, Daman and Diu and other states and first they should implement such schemes there.
