Vice President of All India Fair Price Shop Dealers Federation, Prahlad Modi, on Tuesday, staged a dharna at Jantar Mantar. Moreover, Prahlad Modi is also the brother of Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
Prahlad Modi said that soon a delegation of AIFPSDF will meet Prime Minister Narendra Modi and submit a memorandum. The demands of the organization would be listed in the memorandum and would be conveyed to PM Modi.
“A delegation of AIFPSDF will submit a memorandum to Prime Minister Narendra Modi, listing our long-standing demands for the sake of our survival. With the current situation of a hike in the cost of living and overhead expenditures for running shops, a raise of mere 20 paise per kg in our margin is a cruel joke. We request the Union government to grant us relief and end our financial miseries,” Prahlad said.
Meanwhile, the AIFPSDF has nine demands, including compensation for losses incurred on rice, wheat, and sugar. Prahlad Modi said that the AIFPSDF will hold a meeting of the National Executive on Wednesday. In the meeting, the future strategy will be decided and further initiatives will be taken according to the strategy.
