Sonia Gandhi launches 'zero landless' scheme

Thiruvananthapuram, Sep 30 : Congress president Sonia Gandhi Monday launched a "zero landless" scheme here to ensure that one lakh families in Kerala get to own land by 2015.


"This is a historic moment as the ultimate dream of everyone is to own a piece of land," Gandhi told a meeting after inaugurating the programme.

"By 2015 in Kerala, this (wish) will be fulfilled. Kerala will be the first state in the country to have achieved this," she said.

Under the scheme, all the targeted one lakh families in Kerala will own at least three cents (one acre is 100 cents) of land by 2015.

"A piece of land and a home, if owned by all, will bring happiness to the state and country," Gandhi said.

She distributed title deeds to some of the beneficiaries.
