If there is no development of Barakhala and Cachar, there will be no development of Assam as a whole. And if we want to develop Assam, we have to develop common people. State Public Health Technical Minister Jayant Mallabarua said this while speaking at the new ration card distribution ceremony at Dolu HS School grounds on Wednesday. He said, if you get rice through ration card, you can spend your earned money in other sectors. 8208 new ration cards will be distributed in Barakhla assembly constituency. 29 thousand people will benefit from it. He also said that on the instructions of Chief Minister Himanta Biswa Sharma, he is distributing cards in every assembly area, so that there is no corruption in the distribution of cards. Those whose income is below 4 lakh will also get ration card. Guests including minister Jayant Mallabaruya are handing over symbolic ration card to a beneficiary.

He also said that there is no need to pay any kind of interest in exchange of ration card. This time, apart from rice, through the ration card, you will get free Ayushman scheme medical facilities and free gas connection of Rs 5 lakh, the minister said.

Corruption has been curbed only after the BJP government came under the leadership. Which was not possible during the Congress period. He said that during the Congress government, there was massive corruption with ration cards. Information not verified. Rich people also got ration cards. There has also been cases of misappropriation of goods of fair value by creating ration cards with false information.

1 lakh 11 thousand houses have been constructed in Silchar Lok Sabha constituency. Poor people got 97,000 houses in rural areas and 14,000 houses in urban areas.

District Magistrate Rohan Kumar Jha said, ‘Only two thousand ration cards will be distributed today. Those who have remaining ration cards will get them from tomorrow through GP. If there is any mistake in the card, tell the GP and if the information is given for correction, a new ration card will also be issued.’ He also said, ‘Keep the ration card with you. Don’t leave it at a GP office or fair price shop. Each family member will get five kg of rice. Beneficiaries who have received the new card will be able to collect the rice of the month from the fair price shop by January 31 with biometric information. Moreover, you will get rice from the fair price shop by the 10th of every month.
