If the Centre is not yet convinced that it can provide foodgrains to everyone and not just to those who are below the Poverty Line, it can turn to the example of several State governments who have already done so, said Surya Kanta Mishra, Leader of the Opposition in the West Bengal Assembly, here on Wednesday.
“We are demanding that everyone must be given 35 kg of rice or wheat at Rs. 2 per kg…. Is it possible to do so? If there are any doubts then the Centre only has to look at the manner in which State after State has continued to provide subsidised foodgrains to the people.
