Thiruvananthapuram: The strides being made by Kerala under the LDF government to end homelessness is the real 'Kerala Story', Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan said on Thursday in an apparent dig at the controversial Hindi film 'The Kerala Story'.
Vijayan referred to the film in a tweet after handing over keys to 20,073 homes under the state government's flagship housing project, Life Mission.
He also said that an agreement was entered into to provide homes to 41,439 families under the project which has benefitted over 3.42 lakh families so far.
"Kerala is making great strides in ending homelessness under the LDF Govt's #LIFEMission. Today, handed over 20,073 new homes and entered into agreement with 41,439 more families. So far 3,42,156 families have benefited. This is the real Kerala Story!," he tweeted after the key handing over event which was held here.
"The houses were completed as a part of the LDF government's 100 days 'Karma' programme," the CM said at the event.
Vijayan further said that a secure home was the right of every human being and the sense of security and confidence it provided was not small.
He said the Left government was devising and implementing plans to develop and transform Kerala into a state where everyone lives happily. PTI
