Congress President and UPA Chairperson Sonia Gandhi launched the ambitious ‘Zero landless project’ of the Congress-led UDF government in Kerala on Monday which aims at providing land to all the landless people by 2015.
“Kerala is a state where land is scarce. The growing population and increasing urbanization, both, build up the pressure on the land. This has led to a raise in urban poverty as well as to the growth of the slums in many parts of the country. I believe that in this phase, the programme focuses on giving land to one lakh of landless citizens and I am told that the beneficiaries of this programme will be mostly the weaker section of the society - from Scheduled Caste and Scheduled Tribes, as well as those families with widows, destitute and handicapped and members suffering from chronic diseases”, said Sonia Gandhi.
