He criticised the government over allocations of funds to build new camp office, new secretariat, new assembly etc, instead of allocating funds to the Housing for weaker sections. He said, Govt has no funds for construction of double bed room houses and govt to take loan to build the Houses , but made allocations to administrative buildings.
