Defense Minister Rajnath Singh on Wednesday claimed that under the free ration scheme, people were given more food grains than they could consume and they ended up selling the surplus in the market.

The former BJP president, who addressed four consecutive rallies in Bihar, also slammed the opposition for “false allegations” of price hikes and unemployment, claiming that food, urea fertilizers and internet were “the cheapest in the world” in India. where the unemployment rate was also lower than in the US and China.

“Don’t you each get 5 kg of food grains? I know that if there are four members in a family, each gets a supply of 5 kg and those who cannot consume it, sell the surplus,” Singh said with a chuckle, breaking into the local dialect of Bhojpuri.

He also spoke about the Kisan Samman Yojana and said the Rs 6,000 given to the beneficiaries would enable them to meet their expenses on tobacco, if not anything else.
