Provide Ration to Needy Pak Displaced Families: CM

Jaipur, April 9.  Chief Minister Shri Ashok Gehlot has said the State Government will provide ration items to the families displaced from Pakistan and now residing in any district of Rajasthan.
 
Shri Gehlot took this decision in view of a letter from the Seemant Lok Sangathan President Shri Hindu Singh Sodha and directed the officials to ensure that the Pak displaced families get ration items on time. Shri Sodha had apprised the Chief Minister through his letter that approximately 6000 Pak displaced families are residing in various districts in the state and many of these needy families had faced scarcity of ration items due to lockdown.
 
The CM, in this regard, had given necessary directions to the officers. He called for the reports from the concerned district collectors. According to the reports sent by the collectors, 500 Pak displaced families reside in Jamdoli, Govindpura and Mangyawas of Jaipur. These families are in contact with the district administration and are being distributed ration items. Similarly, in Jodhpur, 618 Pak displaced and needy families are being provided ration items. Additional District Collector (II) Shri Mahipal Kumar had been directed to be in touch with Shri Sodha and make sure that needy families were extended all support.
 
As per the report, there are around 200 Pak displaced families in Sheo and Chauhatan Panchayat Samiti in Barmer district, 92 families in Pali and 93 families residing in Pugal and Bajju tehsil of Bikaner district. All these families were being provided ration items as per the demand. Besides these districts, Pak displaced families were also residing in Jaisalmer, Jalore and Sirohi districts and are being met with their all food-related requirements and the eligible families are being provided with the financial assistance.
 
Shri Gehlot further directed that all such needy Pak displaced families, who do not come in the ambit of any social security scheme, should be provided with ration item kits.
