Nadda visits PDS center, hails PM for free ration scheme

New Delhi, April 13 : BJP President JP Nadda on Wednesday visited a PDS center in Shastri Park in east Delhi’s Kailash Nagar, and distributed packets of ration to beneficiaries. The event came as a part of social justice fortnight being observed by BJP. Amid chants hailing Prime Minister Narendra Modi, and ‘Jai Ram’, Nadda handed over packets of ration to beneficiaries at the center. The packets handed over had Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s photograph on one side, and the photos of the PM, Nadda and Delhi BJP President Adesh Gupta on the other side. Gupta was also present at the event with Nadda. Speaking after handing over ration packets, Nadda said, “After the announcement of lockdown due to the Corona pandemic… Modi ji immediately started the Pradhanmantri Gareeb Kalyan Anna Yojna so that not a single person or family sleeps on an empty stomach or have to suffer hunger. This important scheme shows the foresightedness and compassion of our Prime Minister.” He also used the opport ty to launch an attack at Congress and Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) over Covid vaccinations. “When the Corona vaccination drive was started during the peak of the pandemic, it was the Congress party and the Delhi Chief Minister who had raised doubts over the efficacy and trial results of the ‘Made In India’ vaccines,” Nadda said. “After spreading this canard they themselves took the vaccines developed by our scientists. Today they are keeping mum as the world has recognised the efforts of our Hon’ble Prime Minister Narendra Modi ji in developing the ‘Made In India’ vaccines and saving precious lives during the Corona pandemic,” he said. He also said BJP workers are visiting all PDS centres across Delhi and helping the beneficiaries in getting ration. “Our workers will ensure that all needy and poor people get their ration and their rights are safeguarded,” Nadda said. There are around 74 lakh PDS beneficiaries in Delhi. BJP is observing the fortnight between April 7 and 20 as ‘Social Justice Fortnight’ (Samajik Nyay Pakhwada). AO RKM
