PM’s address at release of financial assistance under PMAY – Gramin to beneficiaries in UP

  • Congratulations to all of you, especially mothers and sisters. Very soon, you are going to get your own home, your dream home.
  • A few days back, the sun entered Uttarayan. It is said that this time is propitious for good wishes.
  • If you get money to build your home during this auspicious time, the joy swells further. Just a few days ago, the country launched the world’s largest corona vaccine campaign.
  • Now this is something which is going to pep up enthusiasm. I had the opportunity to interact with all of you.
  • You also expressed your feelings and gave blessings; and I could see jubilation and satisfaction on your faces.
  • A great dream of a great life was being fulfilled. I could see this in your eyes. Your happiness and comfortable life will be the biggest blessing for me and I congratulate all the beneficiaries of the Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana — Gramin once again.
  • Today is also the birth anniversary of the tenth guru, Shri Guru Gobind Singh ji. On this auspicious occasion, I bow down to Guru Gobind Singh Saheb.
  • I also extend my heartfelt greetings to all my countrymen on the occasion. It has been my privilege that Guru Sahib has been very kind to me.
  • Guru Sahib has been taking continuous services from this servant. While treading on the path of service and truth.
  • Unprecedented work is taking place in the country today to serve and change the lives of the poor, the victim, the exploited and the deprived.
  • Five years ago, I had the privilege of launching the Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana from Agra in UP.
  • In such a short span, the scheme has started changing the picture of the villages of the country. The expectations and dreams of crores of people are linked with this scheme.
  • The Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana has also assured the poorest of the poor that “yes, if not today, I can also have my own home tomorrow”.
  • Friends, I am also happy that UP is among those states in the country where houses for the poor in villages are being built at a very fast pace.
  • This event is an example of this speed. Today, about Rs. 2700 crore rupees have been transferred directly to the bank accounts of more than six lakh families of UP.
  • These include more than five lakh families who have received their first instalment to build houses. That is, the wait for more than five lakh rural families is going to be over today.
  • Today is a great day for all of you and auspicious also, I can understand and feel. This gives me a sense of satisfaction and inspires me to do more for the poor.
  • Similarly, today, there are 80,000 families who are getting the second instalment of their house. Now the next winter will not be so harsh for your family.
