Tirupati: Local MP Dr. Chinta Mohan said that the Union government is committed to provide housing to all eligible shelter-less families in the next two years. Under 'Jawaharlal Nehru Swagruha' scheme, the process of identifying genuine beneficiaries would be initiated shortly, he said. As part of 'Ward Baata' programme, he visited STV Nagar, Sanjay Gandhi Colony, New Indira Nagar, Palle Veedhi, Kummari Thopu and few wards in Korlagunta area on Sunday and addressed women. He distributed few applications to women of Self Help Groups suggesting them to submit the filled in applications to the revenue officials by furnishing all the details. There is no problem with funds by Central government, but the task should be completed within two years, because the shelter is most important for dignified living of people, he said. Whatever the problems and hurdles may be, this project would be completed at any cost, he reiterated. The Union government is trying at its level best to bring 'Food Security Bill' and once this bill was finalized and adopted in parliament, about 70 crore families across the nation would benefit by getting 35 kgs of rice for each family for every month at Rs 3 per kg, MP said. The Union government has also finalized major port at Duggarajapatnam in Nellore district, by which around 500 supplementary industries may come in the areas of Nellore and Chittoor district, which may provide employment opportunities to about 10 lakh unemployed youth, he said. The Central government has already allocated Rs 10,000 crore to this port, he added.
