Hyderabad: Union Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman conducted a surprise inspection at a ration shop in Birgar area of Kamaretti district of Telangana yesterday.
Nirmala Sitharaman asked District Collector Jitesh Patil why there was no picture of Prime Minister Modi on the banner there. And the District Collector replied that he did not know to many questions asked by him.
Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman, who was angry with this, said, “The price of ration rice, which is given monthly to the people on behalf of the central government, will be around Rs. 35 per kg. People buy this at the rate of Rs. 1 per kg of rice.
The state government spends Rs.3.30 per kg. The central government spends the remaining Rs.30.70 cents. Even the cost of transportation is borne by the central government. But in Telangana, the state government claims to provide this rice to the people.
During Corona, the central government provided rice for free. But the district collector knows nothing.
A banner with PM Modi’s picture should be placed in front of the ration shop by evening. Otherwise I will put up a banner myself. Study IAS and be loyal and fair to the Central Govt. Do you understand?” said as Then the people gathered there clapped their hands and cheered.
