Voice Your Views: One kg rice for Re.1

Worse than fodder

More letters on the same topic will be published next week.

The ration rice given for Re. one is of very poor quality. With the fodder for cattle and poultry feed selling at over Rs.15 per kg, all the ration rice is now being bought by people who are using it in place of fodder. The government is doing only an eye wash.

Free TV but no power; free gas connection but no gas; Re.1 rice but not consumable – all political gimmicks. Instead, the government should give the people sewing machine, iron box, easy loan of Rs. 1000 for daily trading, as these will help the poor rehabilitate themselves.

Goutam Ramaprasad,

Tiruchi-1.
