Medha_PatkarSocial activist and former AAP leader Medha Patkar claims to have a plan to provide one crore homes to slum dwellers living in Mumbai, she said, she has a mega housing plan under which one crore houses could be provided to the poor.

Patkar blames state and Central government for not fulfilling the promises made during election of providing homes to poor and homeless people.  For the same Patkar led a rally with homeless poor women, under the banner of ‘Ghar Bachao-Ghar Banao’ organisation in South Mumbai.

While addressing the rally at the Azad Maidan, she said, “The parties make tall promises before elections, but conveniently forget them after polls. All parties have promised to provide liveable shelters in the city before election, but no government has done it so far.”

She further added that, “Now, we have chalked out a comprehensive plan on how one crore homes could be provided to needy people of the city, who are living in precarious conditions in slums. I appeal the government to invite us so that we can present the blue print of our mega housing plan.”

According to Patkar the state and Central governments have “miserably failed” to redress grievances of the common people and they are “serving” the interests only of the well-heeled.
