The second phase of the lockdown has started. People are imprisoned in their homes. Ration is to be given to those who do not have ration facility from the government.

The Delhi government has announced that ration card holders can collect ration from the alloted shops, however, when the ration shop card holders go to the shops they are not given any ration.

Because of this, the difficulties of these poor labourers have increased. They say that they have been traveling around the ration shop for three days, but the ration shopkeeper says that the ration has not come from the government.

Shiv Kumar, president of the Delhi Ration Association, says, “Under the Pradhan Mantri Garib Kalyan Yojana, five kgs of food grains were to reach these needy people, whose order was issued by the central government to the Delhi government on the April 17, and the Delhi government issued the order on the April 18. But the ration at these ration shops has not arrived so far.

Due to which, there is a nuisance between the cardholders and the shopkeeper on a daily basis. It has increased their difficulties.

Ration shopkeepers also say that they have not received commission even for four months from the government and in the circumstances of coronavirus, they are forced to work for their life. Meanwhile, the government has also announced a compensation of Rs 1 crore if someone dies of Covid-19.
