Union Minister slams Congress on ‘luxury MLA houses’

With the Congress party training its guns on the Narendra Modi government over “Modi Mahal” in particular and the Central Vista Project in general, Union Minister Hardeep Singh Puri has been countering the Opposition for several days now. He has upped the ante like never before. 

In his latest attack, Puri said that the Congress party is being hypocritical. The Minister pointed that Maharashtra and Rajasthan (the former is ruled by MVA and the latter by the Congress party) are spending Rs 1,166 Cr on luxury MLA housing projects. 

He added that the cost of India’s new parliament building is just Rs 862 Cr. “Congress hypocrisy on ongoing construction aside, the cost of these ‘luxury’ MLA housing projects merits some attention,” Puri tweeted. 

The total cost of the Central Vista Project is Rs 20,000 Cr and it’s spread over four years.
