Prevented a scam: BJP on Delhi’s ration plan

New Delhi, June 6

Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal and the BJP today engaged in a war of words over the former’s proposed doorstep ration delivery scheme in the national capital.

While Kejriwal asked PM Narendra Modi why the scheme was stalled by the Centre, BJP’s Sambit Patra alleged the initiative was a scam as people “will be charged for wheat flour under the scheme”.

Patra alleged, “Kejriwal is trying to mislead people. One nation, one ration card is a Central initiative, but the Delhi Government refused to implement it.”

“The Centre provides grain under two schemes and these cannot be tampered with. If Kejriwal wants to start another scheme, let him buy grain on his own and do so,” he said. — TNS
