AAP Launches Free ration distribution Helpline to ensure no Goenkar remains hungry
AAP Convener Rahul Mhambre flags off Free Ration Distribution helpline
Aam Aadmi Party today launched a massive covid relief campaign today, with a goal to distribute free ration packets to every house in Goa. Stating that multiple crises such as covid, lockdown and economic downturn had left Goan families in great distress, State Convenor Rahul Mhambre said that the party took this unprecedented step as CM Pramod Sawant did not heed any of the party’s multiple appeals for financial relief to the common man.
“The one-point agenda of this unprecedented campaign is to ensure that no Goenkar remains hungry. We have witnessed first-hand the anguish of the common man during our covid relief work for the past two months. Our Goan brothers and sisters need support, and it is the Govt’s responsibility to provide that support. We appealed to the BJP Govt many times to provide financial relief, but it has fallen on deaf ears. Goans cannot wait anymore for Sawant to understand their plight, so Aam Aadmi Party will do what the BJP Govt is refusing to do”.
Capt. Venzy Viegas informed that the campaign is being undertaken on an unprecedented scale, with not just a helpline number 75 04 75 04 75, but also ground teams going door to door in every village to ensure no one is left out.
“Because of the scale and complexity of the campaign, pilot projects were carried out in three constituencies to streamline the process before launching today. A total of 40 vans have put in service, and more than 1,000 volunteers will be coordinated by village pradhans who will personally deliver the ration packs. Each pack contains about 10 kgs of dry grocery essentials such as flour, pulses, sugar, salt, etc.”, Capt. Viegas said.
Mhambre flagged off the first 20 vehicles today from the party office in Panaji today, along with state leaders such as Adv. Pratima Coutinho, Adv. Surel Tilve, Capt. Venzy Viegas, Shubham Shivolkar, Valmiki Naik, Manuel Cardozo, Sandesh Telekar, Shripad Pednekar and others.
