As Congress continues to defame the Central Vista amid the Covid-19 pandemic, the Congress-led Rajasthan government has started the construction of 160 luxurious flats for its MLAs near the state legislative assembly in the Jyoti Nagar area. The project, which began on May 20, will cost a total of Rs 266 crore for constructing these 160 flats.

The project was initiated by the Rajasthan Housing Board (RHB) in which each flat will be constructed over an area of 3,200 square feet and comprise four bedrooms, ANI quoted a Housing Board official as saying. Though the project is scheduled to be completed within 30 months, the RHB will likely finish it before the given time.

“The work has started on time. This project is right before the Rajasthan Legislative Assembly, and 160 flats are being constructed. Each flat will be on 3,200 square feet. It will have four bedrooms and a separate parking space," the official said.

According to the official, the Jaipur Development Authority (JDA) had earlier proposed 176 flats, but the RHB approved the proposal to construct 160 apartments.

When asked about the same, Rajasthan Pradesh Congress Committee president Govind Singh Dotasra told ANI, “The law is undertaking it".

This came at a time when Congress and other Opposition parties launched attacks on the central government over the construction of the Central Vista project amid the Covid-19 pandemic. Congress leader Rahul Gandhi had even called the Central Vista project a “criminal wastage". The Opposition had asked the Centre to use the money spent on the project to improve medical infrastructure during Covid-19.
