Using the Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana as an example, the Prime Minister emphasized that citizens should not need to chase the government for benefits. He articulated, “If there is a Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana, then the houses should be built with the help of the government. There is no need to run after the government. The Govt should work from the front, and since you have given me this work, about four crore families have got permanent houses.”
