The word ‘Abhinandan’ meant ‘congratulations’ in English at one point. Now it has a completely different meaning,” said PM Modi at the ‘Construction Technology India’ 19′ conclave today.

PM Modi was referring to Wing Commander Abhinandan Varthaman’s return from Pakistan last evening after spending 72 hours in Pakistan Army’s captivity.

He urged people belonging to the housing sector to add fuel to the initiative of New India, that aims to provide a better lifestyle to common citizens of India. He said that that he expects members of the conclave to develop or learn new innovation techniques from the world so that they can be used in the Indian context.

PM Modi asserted that to boost Housing Projects, his government has launched seven flagship programmes: Swach Bharat Abhiyan, Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana, Deen Dayal Updhaya Antyodadaya Yojana, National Rural Livelihood Mission, HRIDAY( Heritage City Development and Augmentation Yojna) scheme and the AMRIT (Affordable Medicine and reliable implants for treatment) scheme.

PM Modi said that he wishes that by 2022, that every Indian has a pucca house to live. He said his government is helping both people of the housing sector and homebuyers, by reducing taxes and GST.
