Telugu states are locked down. Nothing else, except the emergency services, everything got shut down. So far so good. Then what about the common people, who are struggling with this lockdown? Will the government's fund will be sufficient? This is a key point that governments should understand and it is also a sensitive aspect. So, our government should work with integrity and seriously look after this issue. KCR declared that they will issue ration rice for free along with a sum of Rs.1500 for purchasing groceries. In the same way, AP state CM, Jagan Mohan Reddy also announced the same thing. Jagan said that the AP government will issue ration rice and 1 Kg of dal along with a sum of Rs.1000. The government id going to distribute all these by the 4th of next month.
Only the transportation of essential goods has a permit. Rice, milk, and vegetables will be available. Due to the collapse of the construction sector… the poor have lost their income. Now due to Corona's announcement of a lockdown, their employment is going to be severely damaged.
One month ration and Rs. 1000 or Rs.1500 helps the poor to get relieved from the crisis. But this solely cannot help the poor. The governments should be vigilant on the increase in prices of groceries. Because this is the time when the business morons will cash the need of people. So, governments should take strict actions against those merchants. This is going to be a big challenge for the Indian government during this lockdown.
In Kerala… free food canteens have been set up. If they do, the lockdown will be free of hunger and death. Without it, people will face a huge starvation crisis. Governments have to think more effectively and make decisions. Experts are of the opinion that generous assistance is needed.
