WHAT IS MODI GOVERNMENT’S CONTRIBUTION?
In 2017, Prime Minister Modi announced the construction of an additional 10,000 houses for the estate workers. Further, in 2015, he handed over 27,000 houses to Tamils, which were built with the Indian assistance as a part of the reconciliation process.
While it is true that the project continued even after the defeat of the UPA in 2014 and the NDA added 10,000 more houses to support Sri Lanka, the project was started under the UPA government. This fact is missing from Shah’s remark.
