Centre stalling doorstep delivery, says AAP Govt

Sunday, 10 October 2021 | Staff Reporter | NEW DELHI

The Delhi Government on Saturday said the Centre refused to allow the AAP Government to implement “doorstep delivery of ration scheme despite the High Court orders.

The AAP alleged that on the basis of a complaint made by ration shopkeepers, the Centre directed the Delhi Government no to implement the scheme. “The Centre seems to be very sympathetic to ration shopkeepers,” a statement from Chief Minister’s Office (CMO) said.

On the Centre’s move, AAP MLA Saurabh Bharadwaj from Chirag Dilli said the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) has lost all sense and morality and gone against a High Court order that permitted the Kejriwal Government to implement the doorstep delivery of ration scheme.

Targeting BJP ruled Central Government, Bharadwaj said, “Surprisingly, the BJP is working at the behest of a group of ration dealers and is even willing to go against court for them.”

“There is strong nexus between ration mafia and the BJP,” the AAP MLA said.

The AAP is trying its best to eliminate the ration mafia and give people ration with dignity and honesty but the BJP doesn’t want that to happen, he said, adding that they want the people to still remain the stooges of the ration dealers so that the BJP can fill its treasury. He said, “I want to ask the BJP, have all your leaders stopped caring even for the court’s orders now? The Centre has made no objection in the court but in the letter they have said it goes against NFSA guidelines.”
