Video Description

Guna (Madhya Pradesh), Oct 26 (ANI): A 78-year-old woman has become the latest victim of India’s public distribution system on account of Aadhaar as the machine failed to register the woman’s fingerprints for which she was not allowed to take the ration. In the recent times, there have been various incidents of starvation deaths due to unattachment of Aadhaar with ration card. Since Diwali, the woman was unable to collect the ration because of the mismatch, thus leaving her health in a degraded condition. However, after receiving her complaint, the officials have now agreed to give her ration without the Aadhaar identification. Ever since the starvation death of an 11-year-old girl in Jharkhand, there has been mass criticism over the newly introduced governmental policies in regard of the public distribution system. The deceased girl’s family members did not get the food grains from the PDS shop as their ration card was not linked with the Aadhaar card.
