TIRUPATI, AUG. 8. The Tirupati MLA, M. Venkatramana, has claimed that during the regime of the present Congress Government, house site pattas, ration cards and old-age pensions would land up at the homes of the beneficiaries without them having to "loiter around" Government offices as during the TDP regime.
Speaking at a programme organised by the District CPI unit in the Sai Nagar Panchaya, the MLA said the Congress would stand by the poor and provide social security, unlike the previous Government, which "lured and invariably dumped them, promising them moon but giving them nothing."
Mr. Venkatramana promised to sort out the two-decade-old problem with the house sites of Sai Nagar.
The Dt. CPI Secretary, Harinadha Reddy, called on the Congress to take up a permanent housing programme for the eligible poor under the Ambedkar Awas Yojna. Participants at the meeting said the residents were ready to pay a nominal price for the house sites if that would clinch the issue.
