No Aadhaar, no ration for poor

No Aadhaar, no ration for poor

Forty-five-year-old Jagadiswari, who makes incense sticks for a living, has been denied of ration supplied under public distribution system for the past two years. 

“Till two years ago, we used to get ration from a PDS shop.  We are now denied of rations for not linking Aadhaar with our ration card,” she said.

Padma, a pourakarmika, and several others shared similar experiences at a public hearing on Thursday.

Chairman of state commission for Food and Civil Supplies, Dr Krishnamurthy, said he will meet authorities to address the problems.
