Synopsis: Ch. Anil Kumar said that due to the shadow boxing between the Modi Government at the Centre and the Arvind Government in Delhi, the poor people in Delhi were being deprived of free ration, as both these Governments were not in favour of carrying out welfare measures for people.

Delhi Pradesh Congress Committee president Ch. Anil Kumar said that  Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia’s declaration that the Delhi Government will not implement of ration to the poor, exposes it irresponsible and insincere intent, as in the first place, the Government had no intention to provide door-step delivery of free ration by spending its own money.

He said that the Arvind Government tried to capitalize on the Lt. Governor’s denial of permission to implement the door-step delivery scheme, raising various objections, to derive some cheap publicity as it did not want the scheme to be realized.

Ch. Anil Kumar said that if the Arvind Government really cared for the poor, it should have bought ration with budget of the Delhi Government, and distributed free to the poor, who struggled to keep themselves alive during the recent Covid-19 lockdown, as the Government announced the free distribution of ration to the poor only two days before the lockdown was lifted. Ch. Anil Kumar said that most people have not yet got their free ration, with no stock of grains at the distribution centres.

Ch. Anil Kumar said that due to the shadow boxing between the Modi Government at the Centre and the Arvind Government in Delhi, the poor people in Delhi were being deprived of free ration, as both these Governments were not in favour of carrying out welfare measures for people.

He said that Delhi Congress has been demanding from the very first day of the recent Covid-19 pandemic lockdown that the poor and those with no income or any other source of livelihood should be provided free ration, but the Arvind Government sat quiet, making empty notices to fool the people. He said that BJP and AAP had joined hands when it came to opening of liquor shops and home delivery of liquor, and keeping the oil prices high without reducing Excise Duty and VAT on petrol and diesel, as these steps helped the Centre and Delhi fill their coffers with crores of rupees of tax money.
