Union Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman on Friday expressed her anger at Kamareddy Collector Jitesh V. Patil when she did not find Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s picture at a fair price shop in Birkur mandal headquarters village.
Apparently annoyed that the Centre is supplying free rice to poor under the Prime Minister’s Garib Kalyan Yojana to overcome the effects of COVID-19 and yet flexboards carrying Mr. Modi’s picture did not find place in fair price shops of Telangana, Ms. Sitharaman frowned at the Collector that the Centre was within its rights to see the pictures of a great person like Mr. Modi at shops as it supplied the rice free by ensuring logistics in place, free transport and storage. The pictures were essential to see that the rice reached the poor. In this episode of the Editorial our Managing Editor Mr Sujit Nair Shares his take on the matter. #NirmalaSitharaman #KTR #Telangana #Ration
