Mysuru, December 6:- ” The Confederation of Real Estate Developers’ Associations of India (CREDAI) has the responsibility of constructing houses for the poor people,” said the District In-charge Minister G T Devegowda.
He was speaking after inaugurating the two-day summit ‘New India 2018’ of CREDAI at the Convocation Hall of Karnataka State Open University (KSOU) in the city on Thursday.
“CREDAI has covered the entire nation. It is working with state governments to develop 204 cities. There are a lot of challenges ahead. But we have to overcome all those. Prime Minister Narendra Modi has also inaugurated the project. Karnataka is leading the initiative. Leaders from all the parties are together here. We have to keep aside political differences and do work here. KRS Dam was constructed by Sir M Visvesvaraya during the period of the Wodeyars of Mysuru dynasty. The city has several heritage buildings which still stand strong. We have to construct such strong buildings. Mysuru city is growing but the surrounding areas have been sidelined. They should also be developed like townships. CREDAI has the responsibility of providing houses to the poor,” the minister said.
“You are requesting the Centre to reduce the GST price. Your request is justified but it is the responsibility of the government to simplify the rules. It feels great to see 12,000 entrepreneurs standing together. It shows that the future of India is safe,” he added.
