Chandigarh, March 31
In order to provide food to the needy in the wake of the Covid-19 scare, the UT Administration has decided to hold langars along with social organisations.
Pankaj Jain, senior standing counsel, UT, said prior to the lockdown, the UT Adminstration was providing cooked food to 1,000 persons in colonies for Rs 10 under the Annapurna Akshaypatra Scheme. He said said the lockdown, the number of packets have been increased to over 35,000 and it has been made optional whether someone wants to pay or not.
“However, due to the active participation of social organisations who are also distributing food the efforts were doubled which led to hoarding of food,” he said and added that the entire system will be integrated. —TNS
