Will revert to ration cards in FPS: CM

Chief Minister Siddaramaiah on Tuesday said the Department of Food and Civil Supplies will revert to the old system of procuring commodities by producing ration cards in fair price shops (FPS).

There is no need to link Aadhaar cards, provide biometrics or produce bar-coded coupons to procure rations, he said while intervening in a discussion on the state budget proposals in the Legislative Assembly.

The Chief Minister made the statement after M T Krishnappa of JD(S) said the coupon system is inconveniencing all the beneficiaries. – NGB

    If congress was voted to power at the centre they would have proved that aadhaar and its technology was flawed, unsuitable and too disruptive and would inconvenience the people. They would have ensured a brilliant scheme of aadhaar would have died its natural death. It required a visionary like narendra modi to resurrect the scheme and give it proper direction.
    I suppose that is why NaMo said and tweeted that aadhaar is just a gimmick. Truly true words as congress would have never allowed the technology to benefit people or the government.
