Jagan Mohan Reddy invites PM Modi to AP for Ugadi

Chief Minister Y.S. Jagan Mohan Reddy on Wednesday invited Prime Minister Narendra Modi to be the chief guest at a massive programme of distribution of house sites to poor on Ugadi day, the first day of the Telugu new year, which falls on March 25. The Chief Minister extended the invitation during his interaction with the Prime Minister at the latter’s residence in New Delhi.

Chief Minister Reddy explained about the housing program for poor being taken up by his government as part of navaratnalu (nine gems) welfare initiative. Lakhs of beneficiaries would be handed over house site pattas on Ugadi day, he informed Prime Minister Modi.

Mr Reddy also urged Mr Modi to direct the ministry concerned to hand over 800 acres of salt lands in the east Godavari district, which could be utilised for housing purpose by the state government.
