Coronavirus Vaccination: The Delhi government had temporarily banned the distribution of ration through the e-POS (Electronic Point of Sale) system in April 2018.
New Delhi. Union Minister Smriti Irani has launched a scathing attack on Congress President Rahul Gandhi. In fact, in the matter of vaccination, Rahul Gandhi had tweeted and said that online registration of vaccine is not enough. Everyone who walks in at the Vaccine Center should get the vaccine. Right to life even those who do not have internet. After this, while sharing the media reports in his tweet, Union Minister Smriti Irani targeted the former Congress President. He said, “Kahat Kabir, sown tree acacia, aam kahan se hoy. Those who understand must have understood. The central government has already given approval to the states for walk-in registration. Don’t spread confusion, get the vaccine.”
Apart from Smriti Irani, another Union Minister Anurag Thakur attacked Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal by tweeting and said that why is the Chief Minister of Delhi killing the rights of migrant workers. Why don’t they give the benefit of the food scheme to the migrant laborers while implementing the one nation one ration card scheme in Delhi. Counting the figures, Anurag Thakur said that portability transactions of more than 27.8 crore ration cards have taken place in the states. During Kovid, 19.8 crore ration cards have been ported in the months of April and May. The Union Minister also shared a news in his tweet.
Let us tell you that there is a tussle between the central and state government regarding the food scheme in Delhi. The Delhi government wants to run its plan, but the central government has not allowed it. The Center on Tuesday asked the Delhi government to make use of e-POS devices in the public distribution system at the earliest to help about 10 lakh migrant ration card holders in the national capital get their quota of food grains from the Delhi government.
The Delhi government had in April 2018 put a temporary ban on the distribution of ration through the e-POS (Electronic Point of Sale) system. In a letter to the Delhi government, Union Food Secretary Sudhanshu Pandey said that the e-POS machines are not only for transparent distribution of subsidized foodgrains under the National Food Security Mission (NFSA) but also for the implementation of One Nation One Ration Card (ONORC). ONOAC is a technology based facility and it requires the use of e-POS device at the ration shop. Pandey said that without this, there is a hindrance in providing the benefit of one nation one ration card facility to the migrant workers. He said that his department is ready to provide all necessary technical assistance to the Delhi government. With such a facility, the ration card holders of Delhi will also have the facility to get ration in other states.
He told that ‘Mera Ration’ mobile app is currently accessible in ten languages. This will help the citizens of Delhi to get their ration.
