Letter to PMO on universal PDS (May 25, 2021)
MWSN has written to PMO India regarding Supreme Court order, dated May 24, 2021, on ensuring #RationForMigrantWorkers across states/UTs. Read the full letter on the link below.
While PM Modi has acknowledged the role of private volunteer efforts in attenuating the crisis, we submitted that the scale of what India’s toiling and oppressed majority faces is beyond what civil society initiatives can handle. Only an intervention by the Union government to enable dry ration and food canteens without local ID cards, cash transfers for income support and public transport arrangements for migrant workers can orient states and non-governmental initiatives towards surviving this crisis. #UniversalPDS #MigrantLivesMatter
