Delhi Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia on Saturday said the city government has started distributing ration for the next month in the wake of the 21-day lockdown. Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal had announced last week that those receiving ration from fair-price shops would get 50 per cent extra for the next month.
"The Delhi government has started distributing ration for the next month. 7.5 kg per person, which means one-and-a-half times more than the normal," Sisodia said in a tweet in Hindi. There are around 72 lakh beneficiaries of the public distribution system in the national capital.
