Ration Cards Promised in 7 Days But Bihar Villagers Still Waiting After 2 months

Video Volunteers community correspondent Tanju Devi reports from Tripolia village near Patna, Bihar.

As soon as the lockdown was enforced, the Bihar government, through its Bihar Rural Livelihoods Promotion Society or Jeevika, carried out surveys of those who did not have a ration card to distribute free ration.

Many are facing difficulties in feeding their family members and going about their daily lives.
