We do not have enough spaces in FCI n Railway sheds.Huge amount of rice n wheat get wasted.But our people remain underfed n unfed.The Govt. instead of taking up these issues ,thinks of providing cell phones.It is for political mileage only.

For giving Food the Govt is likely to introduce the Food Security Bill in the Parliament very soon. This Bill envisages the grant/issue of cheap food grains to more than 50% of India's population through the PDS (ration card)

It is total misuse. Let them have Roti Kapda aur Makan and then think abt providing such sell phones etc !! To use cell phones, BPL people has to hv a bit of education too !!
