Meanwhile, the TMC has announced a housing rights scheme "Mhaje Ghar, Maalki Hakk" aimed at securing the housing rights of the people in the state.
As per a press note issued by Goa TMC, the scheme aims at securing the housing rights of Goenkars which is a constitutional duty of any government and is interpreted as a fundamental right under Article 21 (Right To Life).
Under the scheme, the TMC-MGP alliance will ensure that within 250 days of forming the government, all the Goan families residing in Goa since before 1976 will be provided with "title and ownership rights of land under possession and 50,000 subsidized homes to homeless families".
In addition, TMC will operationalize pro-people legislations like The Goa Daman and Diu Agricultural Tenancy Act, 1964 and The Goa Daman and Diu Mundkars (Protection from eviction) Act, 1975 on the ground and take the cause further.
It is time to bring an era of pro-people legislation which seeks to protect the lives and livelihoods of Goenkars, the note added.
