At a function held in Delhi to confer freehold rights to residents of 45 resettlement colonies, Rahul Gandhi said giving rights-based legislation was a guarantee of progress."In the last 10 years, we have changed the development paradigm. We are giving rights (to people)," he said.

The decision to give freehold rights is expected to provide relief to 1.5 million people in Delhi. It is being seen as a major election sop by the Congress government in Delhi ahead of assembly elections later in 2013.
