New Delhi: Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal is angry that the central government is obstructing the delivery of rations at home in Delhi. Allegedly, the ration center mafia is kneeling for ration door delivery. Kejriwal questioned why rations were not allowed when pizza delivery was allowed at a time when the corona epidemic was spreading.
He said the Center was obstructing the steps taken by the Delhi government to put a check on the ration mafia. Based on this, it is clear how powerful the ration mafia is. Kejriwal commented that they were on the verge of discontinuing their scheme in just a few weeks. Kejriwal rejected the central government’s claim that the Center had not taken permission to implement the door delivery scheme. Not one, not two, not five times.
Arvind Kejriwal said that legally, the actual center does not even need to take permission. Prime Minister Narendra Modiji .. Allow the implementation of the ration door delivery scheme. I will give you all that credit. The ration does not belong to their party or BJP. People think that Modi and Kejriwal are giving rations together. Kejriwal raised his hand on behalf of 70 lakh beneficiaries and asked them to allow the scheme to be implemented.
However, the lieutenant governor sent back the file saying that the proposals sent by the AAP government within a day or two with the intention of launching a door delivery scheme could not be accepted immediately for two reasons. He said that if one reason was that the Center had not yet approved the scheme, another reason was that the case was in court. Against this backdrop, Aam Aadmi Party leaders, including Kejriwal, are incensed at the Center.
Aday after the Center stalled the Delhi government’s ambitious doorstep delivery of ration scheme, Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Sunday claimed that “legally”, they don’t need to seek the Center’s approval but the AAP government did it out of courtesy.
