Though the scheme was announced two years ago, it had not taken off till recently, except in some areas.

However, with elections just a few months away, the TRS government is trying to complete as many as houses as possible so as to appease voters in different parts of the state.

This has resulted in lot of corruption in the implementation of scheme and the contractors are resorting to poor quality of works in several areas, going by the reports in the media.

On Monday, AICC Leader and Rajya Sabha MP Renuka Chowdhury alleged that large scale irregularities were taking place in every government scheme, including the double-bed room scheme.

She inspected the double bedroom construction works in progress at Julurupadu in Badradri Kothagudem district. She said the government had taken up scheme in a hurried manner keeping in view the upcoming general elections.

“People don’t need the scheme with cheap quality materials used in the construction. She questioned as to who would take the responsibility if the house collapsed.
