Srinagar: CPI(M) leader Mohamad Yousuf Tarigami has aired his exasperation over the inadequate supply of ration in Jammu and Kashmir. 

The significant reduction in the allocation of ration has spurred a wave of desperation among consumers across the region. The government has reduced the quota by over 50 percent following the withdrawal of the Jammu and Kashmir Food Entitlement Scheme (JKFES) and Pradhan Mantri Garib Kalyan Anna Yojna (PMGKAY). 

Under these schemes, the consumers would get 10 kgs of ration. The allocation now has been reduced to 5 Kg only, leaving the consumers distressed. Amidst untamed inflation and unemployment, the withdrawal of food schemes only added to the daily woes of people. The present ration allocation is insufficient to meet the requirements of consumers.

The right to food is a universal right and every individual must have access to adequate food. CPI(M) appeals to the government to ensure adequate food supply to Jammu and Kashmir and increase the monthly subsidized quota of ration to each household.
