In the first 'Pragati' review meeting of his second term in office, Prime Minister Narendra Modi reiterated on Wednesday his government's commitment for the "Housing for All by 2022" mission and urged bureaucrats to remove hurdles to achieve the objective.

He also called upon states to put in maximum efforts towards water conservation, especially during the current monsoon season, according to an official statement.
