Lockdown Na Karane Jilla Fer Aras Paras (Mutual) Badli Mate Arji (Application) Svikarva Babat.

When Prime Minister Narendra Modi addressed the public on the corona virus on Tuesday, there were very few people who heard his entire speech.

In the seventh minute of the speech itself, the PM announced that the lockdown would be fully implemented in the next 21 days in India.

What was it then, on hearing this, there were queues of people buying important items in the markets.

People forgot social distancing and started collecting important items, ration medicines, vegetables, fruits in shops.

The same situation was seen a day before the public curfew.

Talking about the statistics, according to the Food Corporation of India, the stock of wheat and rice is quite high till March. The stock of rice is 309.76 lakh metric tons, while that of wheat is 275 lakh metric tons.

According to FCI, the stock remains almost the same in this month every year. This year the yield of both has also been good, which has not reached the market yet.

Apart from this, pulses, vegetables, fruits, milk and medicines also come in the list of important items.

It is the responsibility of the NAFED, that is, the National Agricultural Cooperative Marketing Federation of India. Talking to the BBC, the chairman of Nafed said that he has no shortage of pulses and oil seeds (ie peanuts, soy).

They have enough stock to meet the demand of the entire country for two years. He has also written a letter to all the state governments that if the state governments have any problem, they can contact them. Goods will reach them within five to seven days.
Clearly, the problem is not in the supply of essential goods, but in its supply chain.

Whether it is the matter of e-delivery of the purchase of goods online or the arrival of the goods at retail shops, there is a problem.

The All India Motor Transport Congress has tweeted from its official Twitter handle that it has stopped trucks carrying essential goods at the border. The drivers have no money for food and water. He has requested the government for help.

The BBC spoke to the association's secretary Naveen Gupta. According to him, the government should have given some time. We did not get any time to prepare.

He told that the public was curfew on Sunday and many states had lockeddown since Monday. Problems started from there. The biggest problem is facing the trucks which are in transit, that is, they are moving from one place to another. Some have essential goods and some have non-essential items. But no one has the right to know or come.
