MP Government Taking ‘Har Har Modi, Ghar Ghar Modi’ Literally



New Delhi: Soon tiles carrying the impression of PM Narendra Modi and CM Shivraj Singh Chouhan will enhance the beauty of houses of 2.86 lakh people in Madhya Pradesh.

Ceramic tiles will be installed in every house built under Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana (PMAY). The size of tiles will be – 45x60cm.

The urban administration department (UAD) has, in its April 4 order, asked all commissioners and chief executive officers of civic bodies in MP to ensure that houses under PMAY have pictures of the two leaders. It has sent a design sample with the letter to each district to ensure that the tiles are made to specification. Sample tile has the slogan ‘Sabka Sapna, Ghar Ho Apna’ and the PMAY logo flanked by photos of the PM and CM.

According to Times of India report, the order categorically states that it is “as per the instructions given by CM in the meeting held on January 2, 2018”. UAD additional commissioner Manju Sharma, who has signed the order, said, “Civic bodies have been asked to fix tiles so that people should know under which scheme their houses were built.”

Asked upon whose orders these tiles are being used, Sharma said, “It was a decision taken at a higher level”. UAD minister Maya Singh went incommunicado when asked about it.

Commissioners and CEOs have been instructed to call tenders and purchase tiles for use in homes built under PMAY.

Over 2.86 lakh houses are proposed to be built in urban areas of MP under PMAY, for which the Centre is contributing around Rs 5,000 crore.
