Thackeray for over 80% MHADA flats to Marathis

The Shiv Sena supremo Bal Thackeray has said that majority of the Maharashtra Housing and Area Development Authority (MHADA) should be allotted to the local Marathi populace.

In the Sena mouthpiece Saamna, the ageing party leader said that over 80% flats should go to the 'Marathi Manoos'. He also objected to the system of draw of lots for selection of beneficiaries.

The MHADA has announced its plan to construct 3863 flats in different localities of the metropolis. The flats would be comparatively cheaper than the flats built by private builders.

During the recent lottery for 800 flats for the Economically Weaker Sections, nearly 100,000 had turned up and Shiv Sena feels that considering those who have spent 15 years in Mumbai, as eligible for flat, is wrong.

The Shiv Sena has said that the flats should be reserved for the people of Maharashtra. Taking a cue from his uncle, MNS leader Raj Thackery also toed the same line today afternoon.
