Rajasthan: Congress govt re-launches scheme with Hindu Goddess ‘Anapurna’ replaced with Indira Gandhi in its name

The scheme Annapurna rasoi yojana was launched during the tenure of Vasundhara Raje as the Chief Minister in the BJP led government. The food was provided to the needy at the cheaper rates through Annapurna vans which were deployed in 200 cities.

The Ashok Gehlot led the Rajasthan government has decided to re-launch a scheme in the state for providing nutritious food to the needy people under Indira Gandhi’s name, which was earlier named after Hindu Goddess Annapurna. Under the relaunched scheme, food will be provided twice a day at a subsidized rate.

It may be noted that Annapurna is is the Hindu goddess of food and nourishment, and is a form of goddess Parvati. The scheme launched by the BJP government was named after this goddess.

Former CM of Rajasthan Vasundhara Raje targeted the Ashok Gehlot and his government over the renaming of the scheme. Vasundhara Raje took to Twitter to say, “Congress government which is specializing in renaming the schemes of our @BJPRajasthan government, has changed the name of Annapurna Rasoi to Indira Rasoi Yojana.”

She further added, “Even after changing the name of our Annapurna scheme, it had to be implemented on the demand of the public. Change yourself, not the names otherwise the public will change everything.”

The Annapurna Rasoi yojana was launched during the tenure of Vasundhara Raje as the Chief Minister in the BJP led government. The food was provided to the needy at the cheaper rates through Annapurna vans which were deployed in 200 cities.

Annapurna yojana vans were launched in 200 cities of the state. Non-government organizations were given the responsibility to look after the services. Now the scheme will be relaunched by the Congress-led government with the name of Former Prime Minister.
