After First India News’ appeal to help feed birds, a sensitive CM Gehlot tweeted an appeal to NGOs & religious institutions to take up the responsibility to feed them
Jaipur: CM Ashok Gehlot has invoked the real ethos of Indian culture and Rajasthan in particular by appealing the people to share their food with at least two needy persons near them.
Gehlot reiterated that the decision to lock-down has been taken to keep people safe of the dreaded infection which must be strictly followed. CM said that the govt was committed to not even a single soul go hungry in the state.
Gehlot appealed to the people that such a herculean challenge could only be met with collective efforts by all so all well off should contribute voluntarily as much as they can. CM Gehlot was chairing a meeting of core group and war rooms through VC on Wednesday evening.
CM stressed on maintenance of the supply chain to ensure regular supply of the daily needs. He said that the grocery stores should be open with maximum door step delivery possible and the trucks transporting fruits & vegetables should be given a clear passage as there was no embargo on sale purchase at agriculture mandies.
Only the MSP purchase and registration by the govt has been postponed. Gehlot also had a sensitive thought for voiceless cattle and birds. He appealed people to keep feeding them. He was particularly worried for the cows at the Gaushalas and instructed easy permits for the cattle feed transportation. CM instructed all the collectors to brief media daily to thwart any fake news spread.
