New Delhi, 6 June 2021

As per news report of The Indian Express, addressing a webcast, Kejriwal asked the PM why the Centre stalled the scheme “days before the Delhi government was going to launch it”. The Union Food and Public Distribution Ministry had said Saturday that the Delhi government was free to procure additional food grains for the proposed scheme under notified rates and launch it, instead of “disrupting” the public distribution system under the National Food Security Act (NFSA) under which highly subsidized food grains are allotted to the states.
