The dream of giving shelter to the poor in Lucknow is in balance, the work of PM Awas Yojana is closed for a year

 The Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana to provide houses to the poor is now stuck due to lack of budget. This construction was to be done by the Municipal Corporation but due to non-receipt of further budget, the work has stopped since a year. In such a situation, the dream of getting shelter to the poor remains incomplete. Once the houses are built, the process of allotment could start with their registration, but due to budget constraints, this is not possible. A total of 264 houses are to be built here and those that have been built are still incomplete. To get these houses, people are wandering in the office of the District Urban Development Agency (DUDA) waiting for registration.

The Prime Minister's residence was being built in Para and several storeyed construction was also done, after the further budget got stuck in the government, the work has come to a standstill and there is a deserted atmosphere there. 11 crore was approved for the construction of Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana. The tender was also done in the year 2018. The work had also started and fifty percent of the work was also completed. 2.24 crore was also paid but after that no one breathed and work has stopped for a year and only semi-finished houses are questioning the plan. Municipal Corporation Chief Engineer Mahesh Verma says that the work was stopped due to non-receipt of further installments for the construction. He will examine the file and the letter will be written for the budget.
