Government to give Rs 2 per kg Wheat and Rs 3 per kg Rice

After the cabinet meeting, Union Minister Prakash Javadekar warned black-marketers and hoarders against strict action. He also assured people not to get caught into any rumors and continue to supply essential items during the lockdown.

Javadekar said that the whole world is going through a crisis due to Corona epidemic. The only way to avoid this is social distancing. Due to this, the lockdown has increased the troubles of ordinary people. In view of this, a way has been found to give relief to 80 crore people. Now, due to this decision, a person will be allowed to get 21 kg of food-grain. Necessary preparations have been made for this.

Strict message to hoarders
During this time, Javadekar gave a strong message to hoarders and black marketers. He said that prompt and strict action would be taken against such complaints. Such cases will be dealt with vigorously.

Appeal to avoid rumors
The Union Minister said that there would be no shortage of essentials during the lockdown. Like normal days, essential shops including ration, milk, medicines, meat will remain open. People can shop for essential items at these places just like normal days. So do not buy excessively due to fear in the rumor or else it will lead to hoarding and black marketing.
