Delhi BJP president Adesh Gupta on June 23 criticised AAP leader Manish Sisodia, saying comparing home delivery of pizzas with the doorstep delivery of ration for poor people is a “vulgar joke”.
His statement came after the Delhi deputy chief minister asserted the doorstep delivery of ration scheme has to be implemented, saying, ‘If people can have pizza, clothes and other consumables delivered to their homes, why can’t ration be delivered to their doorstep?’
Delhi BJP president Adesh Gupta said it was a ‘vulgar joke’ to compare home delivery of pizzas with that of doorstep ration for poor people.
“Sisodia should know they do not eat pizza,” Gupta added.
Gupta also claimed that AAP idea of delivering ration at the doorstep was laughable as it was not able to even supply ration from its stores to fair price shops.
‘It is very unfortunate that Kejriwal and Sisodia show more interest in politics and issuing regular statements on ration delivery instead of providing adequate foodgrains to poor people,’ Gupta charged.
Gupta also mentioned that the Modi government will be providing free ration to needy people till November, but the Delhi government is going to stop it from July 1.
