Arvind Kejriwal, CM, Delhi :
The poor have to face the most financial trouble in lockdown. Some announcements for them :
We have decided that all ration card holders in Delhi, around 72 lakhs in number, will be given free ration for the next 2 months.
It doesn’t mean that the lockdown will continue for 2 months. We are doing this to help the poor who are undergoing financial problems.
Auto and taxi drivers are an integral part of Delhi’s transport system. During the lockdown, the livelihood of auto and taxi drivers is adversely affected.
All autorickshaw drivers and taxi drivers in Delhi will be given Rs 5000 each by Delhi govt so that they get a little help during this financial crisis.
This is the time of humanity, not of politics. In this difficult period, I appeal to all to come forward to help each other.
