Bangla Hunt Desk: There is no doubt that the extended lockdown till May 3rd has caused the poorest people in India to suffer the most. And to address this problem, every state government should take special care of the poor people in their own state. Most states are doing this too. But another image emerged from Domkal in Murshidabad district in West Bengal.
Hundreds of people took to the streets and demanded food. Although they did not maintain any social distance in protest. The unsettling look came from Doomkal on the last day of the first round of lockdown on Tuesday. About 3 families jammed the road for 3 hours and protested against the government. The only thing they demand is work, no food After the local administration intervened in the case, the situation came under control.
It should be noted that while talking to the media earlier, the state food minister, Jyotiri Malik, assured the people that there was no shortage of food in the state. There is enough food stock in the government reserves. Even before the lockdown on the first screen, Union Minister Rambilus Paswan said that there was no food shortage in the country. So don't store any food at home with any rumor.
State Food Minister Jyotiri Malik said that the state still has 1.5 lakh metric tonnes of rice. There are also more than 3 lakh metric tons of rice stored in the store. He also said that our government is buying rice directly from the farmers so there is no need for the farmers to panic. But despite his assurances, the question is not going to ration in people's homes in Domkol, Murshidabad.
Let me tell you, Mahadev Das, a resident of Ward 1 ward of Domkal, complained, “In the last two weeks, our local ration dealer Dulal Saha has made a kilogram of rice per family. It is not enough for 5-7 family members. ” “Most people in our area work in this state and other states,” he said. Our livelihood is gone because of the lockdown. He said that we were told that free ration was being provided by the Central and State Government. But we are not getting it. We couldn't verify the authenticity of this video that went viral on social media.
