The PM Garib Kalyan Anna Yojana which was ending today has been extended now till the end of November month.
Congress President Sonia Gandhi and CM Ashok Gehlot had earlier demanded that the scheme should be extended.
Under this scheme, 5 kg free wheat/rice to be provided to each member of the eligible family along with 1 kg free whole chana per family, per month.
Infact , Rajasthan was recently adjudged top position in distribution of ration under this scheme and its efforts were appreciated in giving relief to the people during Corona pandemic.
This is not the first time that the entire country will benefit from the efforts of the Congress party and Gehlot.
During the lockdown period when the issue of migrant labourers walking towards their home was the highlight of the nation, it was Gehlot who demanded special trains for them and centre after a few days finally started the special trains to ferry migrant labourers back to their home.
Earlier to that, Gehlot was the first Chief Minister to have implemented a complete lockdown in the state which was the right time as after that state rapidly scaled up its corona testing capacity while Congress too has raised demand to transfer cash benefits to the needy people during the Corona pandemic.
Rajasthan CM’s vast experience in public life and handling of crises like famine has given him the advantage of dealing with such situations. He has taken many innovative steps during this unprecedented crisis.
