NEW DELHI: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Friday said India has been providing free ration to about 80 crores poor for the last seven to eight months amid the COVID-19 pandemic.
“Another important work is being done to tackle malnutrition. Now such crops are being promoted in the country, which are having nutritious substances like protein, iron and zinc in high quantity. This year’s Nobel Peace Prize being awarded to the World Food Program is a big achievement. India is happy that our contribution and association with it has been historic,” he added.
