The struggle on door-to-door ration in Delhi does not seem to be stopping yet. Union Minister and BJP leader Ravi Shankar Prasad on Friday hit back in response to the allegations of the Delhi government, saying that Arvind Kejriwal is talking about food in every household, while the reality is that he could neither deliver oxygen to hospitals during the Corona period and Neither could the medicine be delivered to the Mohalla clinics. Every household ration is also a jumla. The Delhi government is under the control of the ration mafia.
Ravi Shankar Prasad said that the Government of India gives wheat at Rs 2 per kg, rice at Rs 3 per kg across the country. Under the Pradhan Mantri Garib Kalyan Anna Yojana, like last year, this time also free ration is being given to the poor till November.
Rice costs Rs 37 per kg and wheat costs Rs 27 per kg. The Government of India gives subsidies to the states to distribute food grains to the needy poor through ration shops. The Government of India spends about Rs 2 lakh crore annually on this.
Kejriwal’s question to PM- If pizza is home delivery then why not ration?
‘One Nation, One Ration Card’ is a very important scheme launched by the Government of India. The ‘One Nation, One Ration Card’ scheme is running in 34 states and union territories of the country. So far 28 crore portable transactions have been done on it.
Arvind Kejriwal should answer why ‘One Nation, One Ration Card’ has not been implemented in Delhi till now? What is their problem and or problem in this? Along with this, the BJP leader has asked him why the authentication of PoS machines has not started in Delhi’s ration shops since April 2018. Arvind Kejriwal does not worry about the SC-ST category, does not even worry about the migrant laborers, does not even care about the eligibility of the poor.
It is worth noting that Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal had said a few days ago that the scheme of delivering ration from door to door was going to start in Delhi soon, all the preparations had been done for this, but it was stopped by the central government 2 days ago. . The Center claims that we did not take approval. We have taken approval not once, but five times. Legally we don’t need the Centre’s approval, but we did so out of courtesy. Why should there be no home delivery of ration? If you stand with the ration mafia, who will stand with the poor? What will happen to those 70 lakh poor people whose ration is stolen by these ration mafia.
Kejriwal said that the ration mafia is very powerful. For the last 75 years, the people of this country have been a victim of the ration mafia. Even after that the ration gets stolen. 17 years ago I raised my voice against this ration mafia, we were attacked 7 times by dangerous, then I had vowed that I will definitely fix this system at some point. That’s why we came up with a plan to deliver ration from door to door. But due to their fear, the government is stopping it. He said that if pizza can be home delivery then why not ration?
