The district administration Thatta has distributed expired ration among the needy and poor people, as per the reports of local media, this Saturday.
The ration was expired back in 2002, 2006 and 2008. It got revealed when the children consumed the distributed ration and their condition worsened.
The affected people complained to the police but still, no case has been registered against the ones who supplied them the expired ration and risked their lives.
The deputy commissioner refused to comment on this matter although the people have asked the Sindh government to take strict action against this issue.
The Sindh Minister for Energy Imtiaz Shaikh announced on 4th April that the Provincial government had raised the ration funds to Rs.1.1 billion in order to aid the deserving families in the coronavirus crises in the middle of the lockdown.
The ration worth Rs.3,000 contains all the essential commodities one requires on a daily basis which are distributed to all the needy people early in the morning or in the late-night hours.
On the other hand, the Punjab government has decided to extend the lockdown till the 21st of April.
