Congress accuses PM of spreading lies 

The Congress on Friday accused Prime Minister Narendra Modi of lying about the housing schemes of the government. “While the people of India have become habituated to the lies being spread by the Prime Minister, he has hurt the sentiments of Sai Baba devotees like me by lying in Shirdi,” said Maharashtra Pradesh Congress Committee President Ashok Chavan. 

 
The Prime Minister has misled the people by making false claims that the UPA Government built only 25 lakh houses in four years, while the NDA government constructed 1.25 crore houses in the same time-frame. Under the Indira Awas Yojana, between 2004 and 2013, during UPA government, more than 2.24 crore houses were constructed, the former Chief Minister said.
 
Under UPA government’s tenure, almost 25 lakh houses were completed every year. The statistics released by the government prove that the objectives of the Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana have not been fulfilled.

Huge backlog

"According to the CAG report of 2014, the UPA government constructed 1 crore 28 lakh 92 thousand houses during 2008-2013. The Rajiv Awas Yojana, launched during the UPA government in 2013, saw the construction of 1.17 lakh houses in one year. Prime Minister Modi has changed the name of this scheme to Sardar Patel National Urban Housing Mission, with the promise of constructing 2 crore houses by 2022. However, by July 10,  2017, only 1.33 lakh houses have been built," added Chavan.
