“The government is sending prescribed quantity of ration according to every family in the district. So, who is working against intention of government and why no action is taken against those people? What action has been taken to provide ration to the families who did not receive it?” Patel said.

MLA said he will stage sit-in if the prescribed quantity of ration is not provided to all the beneficiary families in the district.
