New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Monday inaugurated multi-storied flats for Members of Parliament through video conference.
Accommodation for the MPs has been a long standing problem but it is now solved, he said. ‘Decades old problems don’t end by avoiding them, but by finding solutions,’ the Prime Minister said after the inauguration.
The Prime Minister listed many such projects in Delhi which were incomplete for many years and taken up by this government and finished before the scheduled time.
During the time of Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee, the discussion of Ambedkar National Memorial started, it was built by this government after a long wait of 23 years.
Mr Modi said, the new building of the Central Information Commission, the War Memorial near India Gate and the National Police Memorial, pending since long, were built by this government.
The multi-storeyed flats for the MPs are being built at Dr B D Marg in New Delhi. Eight old bungalows, which were more than 80 years old, have been redeveloped to construct 76 flats.
The Prime Minister said Green Building norms have been incorporated in the project.
He hoped that these new flats will keep all the residents and the MPs safe and sound.
