New Delhi, 6/6 (AO Bureau): Delhi Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia said that the Bharatiya Janata Party is interested in abusing Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal instead of stopping the theft of ration in the country. He alleged that BJP is behind the theft of ration of 80 crore people in the country.
Senior Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leader Manish Sisodia said, ‘I saw the press conference of BJP spokesperson Sambit Patra. He did not mention ration theft in the country and instead made a scathing and derogatory attack on Arvind Kejriwal. They did not speak on what 80 crore people are facing. They are trying to say that the Aam Aadmi Party should not look at the ration of 80 crore people in the country which is being stolen.
Deputy Chief Minister Sisodia said the BJP wants to continue ration theft in the country and its leaders will abuse anyone who questions it, as Patra did to Kejriwal. Earlier, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal had claimed that the Center has stopped the scheme of providing door-to-door ration and appealed to Prime Minister Narendra Modi to allow it for the benefit of 70 lakh people of Delhi.
Central government banned
Let us tell you that the central government has banned the ambitious plan of Arvind Kejriwal government to deliver ration from door to door in Delhi. All the preparations were done for this scheme and it was to be started from next week. The central government says that this scheme comes under the National Food Security Act of the central government.
On this matter, the Center says that only Parliament can make any changes in the ration scheme. States cannot make any changes in this. The Center says that the Delhi government cannot associate this scheme with anyone else nor can it make any change in the name.
