Door to door ration scheme: Sambit Patra slams Kejriwal, said 'PM Modi delivered ration to the poor'

New Delhi: Politics has now begun in the capital Delhi over the door-to-door ration scheme. The BJP has recently hit back at the Delhi Chief Minister's allegations. In fact, BJP national spokesperson Sambit Patra has held a press conference recently. "Delhi CM today has said that Modiji is depriving the poor people of Delhi of their rights and trying to stop the 'door-to-door ration scheme' when it is not so. Modiji is delivering rations to the needy of Delhi through the National Food Security Act and the PM Garib Kalyan Yojana".

He also said, "The Modi government has so far sent 37,400 metric tonnes of foodgrains to Delhi under the National Food Security Act. Under the Pradhan Mantri Garib Kalyan Other Scheme, 72,782 MT of foodgrains have been sent to Delhi from May to June 5, out of which Delhi has so far been able to lift only 53,000 Metric Tonnes of foodgrains and only 68 per cent of it has been distributed to the people".

In a press conference further, he said, "Under the National Food Security Act, the Delhi government pays only Rs. 7 per kg. On the other hand, for rice per kg, the Delhi Government gives only Rs.3 and the Central Government gives 33 rupees. 79 per kg. If the Delhi Government wants to distribute ration in addition, it can buy ration for it. Rations can be purchased at notified rates".

He also said, "That is, the Delhi government can also buy at the same rate as other States will get. The Central Government will not have any objection to this. We tell you how the Delhi Government works. The provision of One Nation-One Ration Card was made by the Central Government, but the Delhi government refused to proceed on the subject, which has deprived thousands of labourers of ration today".
