Ration distributed to families in Mau Sahib

PHILLAUR, APRIL 7,2020 ( By SK.Vyas) : Continuing the drive to help people survive the curfew imposed in the state due to COVID-19 pandemic, Member of Parliament Santokh Singh Chaudhary and Assembly Incharge Vikramjit Singh Chaudhary led the distribution of ration bags to families in Mau Sahib village today.
The bags containing 10 kg atta, 2 kg dal and 2 kg sugar were delivered to every family at their homes amid the curfew.
Chaudhary Santokh Singh said that as the people cannot go out due to the curfew, the ration is being delivered to them at their doorsteps. He informed that the mandated physical distance between people is also being maintained during the distribution drive.
MP Chaudhary also criticized the Modi Government’s decision to suspend MPLAD (Local Area Development) funds for two years and urged the Government to reconsider it. He said that he welcomed the cut in the salaries of MPs, but the fund belonged to the people of the constituency and taking it away is gross injustice to them.
“It is our solemn duty to contribute to the fight against COVID-19 pandemic and we stand united during this time of crisis, but this decision has turned the health emergency into an undeclared financial emergency,” the MP said, adding that the money would go into the Consolidated Fund of India, so there is no certainty that it would be used to deal with the coronavirus crisis only.
Assembly Incharge Vikram Chaudhary lauded the efforts of Captain Amarinder Singh-led Government for standing with the people during this time of crisis and said that the essential needs of everyone are being met. He also praised the people for cooperating with the administration in its efforts to stop the spread of the coronavirus disease.
Tehsildar Tapan Bhanot, Naib Tehsildar Jaswinder Singh, DSP Davinder Attri, SHO Phillaur Mukhtiar Singh, Food and Supplies Inspector Amandeep Singh, Sarpanch Gurdial Singh and Panchayat Secretary Dharampal were also present on this occasion.
