Prime Minister Narendra Modi has done nothing for the development of people in the nation, said Minister for Food and Public Distribution, U T Khader.
Addressing media persons at a press meet held in the city on Tuesday, he said, “Modi is makinga mockery of the public and is just playing a card for the upcoming election in Uttar Pradesh. Demonetisation has had an adverse affect on the poor families in the nation and they are the one who are suffering from it. Around 70 members have died in the nation post-demonetisation. The cash crunch in the nation hasn’t been solved even after 50 days.”
Later speaking about the ration cards, he said, “For the first time in the country, APL cards can be availed through online application and if Aaadhar card is linked with the application within 15 days, the ration card reaches the applicant early,” he added.
Mysuru District Congress president B J Vijay Kumar, KEA Chairman Siddaraju and others were present.
