Govt to challenge ECs decision on free rice distribution

Thiruvananthapuram: With Election Commission questioning its decision on free rice distribution to BPL families in poll-bound Kerala, the state government Wednesday decided to take legal recourse to get permission for the schemes.

The state cabinet that met here decided to move the High Court challenging the Election Commission’s decision.

Although the Chief Secretary had gone to Delhi and explained the matter to Chief Election Commissioner, no favourable decision has come from the EC. The government had also sent a detailed letter to the EC on the matter.

The EC had also restricted the supply of free ration materials for workers who had lost jobs due to closure of cashew factories, he said.

The comprehensive health insurance scheme, distribution of financial assistance under Karuniya scheme and allocation of funds from CM's Relief Fund have also been affected due to Election Commission's decision.
