Accommodation Times - - .. Echos.. -

This elec­tion very party is talk­ing about their Man­i­festo, many can­di­dates have taken hous­ing is­sues in Mum­bai as their man­i­festo. Let see what prom­ises they are mak­ing for Mum­bai cit­i­zens to solve their needs for af­ford­able hous­ing and slum free city

2. BJP can­di­date Poonam Ma­ha­jan said, “Hous­ing is the ut­most pri­or­ity and I have ear­marked it for work if voted to power. People are be­ing re­lo­cated some­where else while they de­serve to be re­lo­cated in the same area. This is hap­pen­ing due a well carved-out con­spir­acy to give that huge chunk of land to builders.”

1. Mayank Gandhi, a mem­ber of the AAP party’s na­tional ex­ec­u­tive and a can­di­date, “We want to bring in the so­cial hous­ing pol­icy fol­lowed all over the world, where hous­ing is pro­vided by the govern­ment and not builders, cur­rently, Mum­bai is a city of the builder, by the builder and for the builder.”

3. Ac­tivist Medha Patkar con­test­ing the North­East seat, said, “I have done tremen­dous work in Vikhroli and ad­ja­cent ar­eas and have fought for hous­ing rights. I have a strong­hold in slums, My de­mands are land and hous­ing rights for slum-dwellers.” she said.

4. Congress MP Priya Dutt, “I’d like to con­cen­trate on slum de­vel­op­ment and re­ha­bil­i­ta­tion, “More than 60% of my con­stituency is slums, we are con­sid­er­ing so­lu­tions such as low-rental hous­ing and in­volv­ing MHADA in all re­de­vel­op­ment projects so that le­gal cases against pri­vate de­vel­op­ers don’t stall the process.”

5. San­jay Niru­pam, MP, In­dian Na­tion Congress said, “I have al­ways been ac­ces­si­ble and most ac­tive to the people of my con­stituency and have done ev­ery­thing for the bet­ter­ment of my vot­ers. Deemed con­veyance passed by the govern­ment of the Ma­ha­rash­tra is the fruit of my con­stant ef­forts, which has been proved ben­e­fi­cial for lakhs of hous­ing so­ci­eties from all over the state.”
