The supply of ration in the month of January was to be completed by January 15. But due to a mistake, problems have arisen in front of more than 3.20 crore ration card holders of the state. Actually, the packet in which the ration was being distributed to the ration card holders has the photo of Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath. After the code of conduct was implemented, the photo was to be removed from the packet, but instead of removing the photo, the supply has been stopped.
UP has the highest number of ration card holders in the country. Whereas in Kanpur their number is about 7 lakh 73 thousand. After the code of conduct was implemented, some supplies were made by removing the photos of Modi and Yogi from the packet, but the photo was reprinted on the packet. Now this entire supply has been stopped. Nafed organization is now repackaging salt, refined oil and whole gram. Only after that the supply will be able to start. Due to this, about 2 lakh people in Kanpur have not been able to supply ration. Kanpur-like situation prevails in the entire state.
people will go hungry
Under the Pradhan Mantri Garib Kalyan Anna Yojana, this ration is being provided free of cost to both Antyodaya and eligible household card holders. Most of them are people who are completely dependent on this ration. Due to non-availability of ration, a crisis arises in front of them even for 2 times roti. According to District Supply Officer Akhilesh Srivastava in the matter, about 100 Kotedars in Kanpur do not have ration. Ration distribution can start by January 17.
About 7 and a half lakh beneficiaries in the district
The total number of ration card holders in Kanpur is more than 7 and a half lakhs. Explain that due to the Corona period, the government had decided to provide free ration. Under the Pradhan Mantri Garib Kalyan Anna Yojana and regular ration distribution, ration distribution is done twice a month. Free ration distribution has been extended till March-2022.
