After lockdown in Delhi was extended by another week, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on May 04 announced free ration for all card holders for next two months in the national capital.
He further declared a help of Rs 5,000 to all auto-rickshaw drivers and taxi drivers in Delhi.
"We have decided that all ration card holders in Delhi, around 72 lakhs in number, will be given free ration for the next 2 months.
It doesn't mean that the lockdown will continue for 2 months.
It is just being done to help the poor going through financial issues.
All auto-rickshaw drivers and taxi drivers in Delhi will be given Rs 5,000 each by Delhi government so that they get a little help during this financial crisis," said CM Kejriwal.
