Pune : Slamming the government decison to increase the FSI, the
Rashtriya Dalit Congress on Monday demanded that every slumdweller
should get 'a 550 square feet home.'
The demand was made at a workshop organised by the RDC at Salave
Garden, Kondhwa, regarding the Slum Rehabilitation Scheme. Addressing
party workers, RDC president Shashikant Ghode said,"The recent
government annoucement of increasing FSI by 0.5 is of no use to the
slum-dwellers. That is for the benefit of builders. We disagree with
the decision. We demand that every slum-dweller must get 550 square
feet home," he said.

"Overall there is a big amount of money involved, so we demand that
the government release a white paper. The government should also
declare as to which slum is allotted to the builder and his sons or
relatives and the corporators, MLA or minister who are the partners.
We have requested the chief minister to do the needful."
