"The central government has the policy to provide houses for all till 2022. However, in Maharashtra, everyone would get house by the end of 2019," Fadnavis said.

He was addressing a rally at Faizpur in the district while campaigning of BJP candidates in the local bodies polls, first phase of which is starting on 27 November.

The Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojna envisaging 'houses for all by 2022' was launched by Prime Minister Narendra Modi last year. The scheme is mainly aimed at providing affordable homes to people living in urban areas.

The Maharashtra government had last year proposed to bring the improvised, practical and better version of the Centre's 'Housing for All' by 2022.
