Delhi govt to give ration for free for 6 more months 

Delhi government has extended its free ration scheme for next six months in the wake of the negative impact of the Covid pandemic on people, especially the poor. Chief minister Arvind Kejriwal has written a letter to PM Narendra Modi appealing that the Centre should also extend its free ration scheme considering the pandemic and the rising inflation in the country.

The central government has announced that it currently has no proposal to continue free ration distribution under Pradhan Mantri Garib Kalyan Yojana after November 30.

Delhi govt to give ration
“Delhi government is extending its free ration scheme to the poor for six months. I urge the central government to also extend its ration scheme for six months by writing a letter to the Prime Minister. People are in a lot of trouble right now. It would not be right to leave their hand at this juncture,” Kejriwal stated in a tweet in which he shared the letter to the PM.

In another tweet, the CM said, “Inflation has become too high. The common man is finding it difficult to even get two square meals. Many are unemployed due to Covid. Mr Prime Minister, please extend this scheme of giving free ration to the poor for six more months. Delhi government is extending its free ration scheme for six months.”

Underlining the need to extend the free ration scheme, Kejriwal stated in the letter that “during the Covid period, the central government had given free ration to every ration card holder across the country in addition to the ration that was being made available every month. Delhi government made the monthly ration supply free from its own end.”

The CM said: “Due to these steps of the central government and Delhi government, the poor got a lot of relief during the pandemic. These schemes of both the governments are ending in November. The central government has announced that this scheme will not be extended after November.”

Kejriwal further wrote in the letter that “many people lost their jobs during the Corona period. They have no means of earning...Delhi government is extending the scheme from its own end to provide people free additional ration for six months. It will be very kind of you to do the same as well.”
