| Updated: October 8, 2022 18:24

Ahead of the Gujarat Assembly elections, the Gujarat government has revived its Shramik Annapurna Yojana to provide construction workers with a nutritious meal once a day at the reduced price of Rs 5.

Anju Sharma, additional chief secretary of the labour and employment department, after relaunching the scheme said “The Shramik Annapurna Yojana, which was started to provide nutritious meals to construction workers, had to be stopped because of the pandemic lockdown. We are restarting this scheme and the meals will be provided at Rs 5 instead of Rs 10, adding , a family of five will be able to have a full meal for just Rs 25, also The menu has also been changed. To provide more protein, pulses and jaggery have also been included. These meals were made available at 119 ‘kadia nakas’ (places where labourers gather in the morning in search of work). Now 140 such ‘kadia nakas’, in all the districts, will be covered,” Sharma said at the event where Chief Minister Bhupendra Patel was also present.

In July 2017, the Vijay Rupani government launched the scheme ahead of the Assembly elections that year. Saffron-coloured food stalls with pictures of Prime Minister Modi then gave out meals to registered construction workers.
