Karnataka minister spends Rs 7 crore to help 65,000 poor families, makes mockery of lockdown rules

Karnataka forest minister Anand Singh spent crores to offer essentials for 65,000 families of the poor, but it ended up defeating the very purpose of lockdown.

Many anxious residents and poor families gathered in large numbers at Hospet town to grab the essential kit.

PM Modi's message did not seem to reach the ears of those distressed, hungry and starved due to this coronavirus lockdown.

Minister Anand Singh, under Ahahrananda scheme, had announced that below the poverty line card holders will be given free essential services. He spent Rs 7 crore to help 65,000 poor people in Hospet town of Ballari district in Karnataka.

Every single BPL card holder, who was promised to get the kit, gathered in large numbers and nobody followed the lockdown guidelines. Nobody maintained social distance and everybody thronged to get the kit from the minister.

According to Karnataka Government,
Hospet town is in Ballari district is marked as a red zone for coronavirus.

Some activists said that if any positive case is reported from here, Anand Singh should be held responsible.
