People want food, not cash, says report

Members of awareness committee on ration shops in eight districts have been found to be unaware of their roles and responsibilities, while only eight per cent of them were accessible, states a survey conducted by the Right to Food Campaign-Karnataka (RFC-K).

These are a few among the many revelations of the survey conducted in the eight districts by the RFC-K. The survey report highlighted that 98 per cent of the population surveyed wanted food instead of cash.

Nearly, 90 per cent of the people wanted PDS to be universalised instead of restricting it to families living below the poverty line (BPL).

Change at every stage
Sudha K of the Centre for Advocacy and Research (CFAR) released the report. Speaking on the occasion, Clifton D’Rozario, the Advisor to the Commissioners (Supreme Court), emphasised on the need to bring a change at every stage to ensure food security in the country.
