New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi Wednesday said providing houses for all by 2022 should be a “movement” and everyone should pitch in for this.

“Let it be a 10-12 year long programme… make it a movement. On 75 years of independence, we will remember all the great heroes of our country and give the houses to all,” Modi said in the Lok Sabha, while replying to the debate on the motion of thanks on the president’s address.

“We will find the way, we need to have the dream. There will be difficulties, but we will overcome them,” he said while speaking for the first time on the floor of the Lok Sabha.


President Pranab Mukherjee said Monday that by the time the nation completes 75 years of its independence in 2022, every family in India will have a pucca (brick and cemented) house with a water connection and toilet facilities.
