Some 53,500 more homeless and landless families are going to get semi-pucca houses in June under the Ashrayan 2 project.

Earlier in January, some 70,000 homeless and landless families received tin-shed homes along with two decimals of land under the special project run out of the Prime Minister's Office (PMO) in the Mujib Year.

Now the second phase of distribution of the semi-pucca houses will start early June, according to the plan taken in a meeting held with PM's Principal Secretary Dr Ahmad Kaikaus in the chair Monday.

The meeting was held at the Prime Minister's Office to review the progress over the ongoing construction of houses under the Ashrayan 2 project.

All divisional commissioners, deputy commissioners, and upazila nirbahi officers (UNO) were virtually connected with the meeting.

In the meeting, the field-level administration was directed to complete the construction of houses within the stipulated time maintaining the quality in works without any deviation.

Alongside expediting the present construction works, the field officials were also asked to take preparations to construct another 125,000 houses for homeless people in the next year.

The principal secretary directed the field officials not to compromise the quality of the houses. 

"If we find any deviation in it, we will show zero tolerance. Any deviation will in no way be tolerated. Do not take it lightly. We will not let anyone tarnish the image of the project or the initiative," he said.

Dr Kaikaus also said the noble deed like construction for homeless people is an excellent opportunity for the officers to show their efficiency in their career.
