This scheme is for the migrant worker of the West Bengal state. The government of West Bengal has decided to launch a scheme for the state’s migrant workers who have come to their hometown during lockdown conditions.
Due to the COVID-19 crisis, the Indian government has announced a lockdown all over the country. The Indian government has announced this lockdown to reduce the faction of coronavirus.
However, the government has given relaxation after 3 months of lockdown. During the lockdown era, the government is banned all the economic activity in the nation.
About West Bengal Mamata Kitchen (Didir Rannaghar) Scheme 2020:
All the industry, manufacturing companies, and services sector have stopped their work in the lockdown situation. However, the work is stopped, and the worker who is doing their work has become unemployed.
The worker who is doing labor work mostly belongs to the Uttar Pradesh, Bengal, and Bihar state. Now those workers became workless, and their daily earning is also stopped. The big question is raised before the workers for earning. Some of those workers have decided to migrate to their hometown.
After facing many problems, the workers have reached their hometown. In their hometown also, they are facing financial problems. To help those workers, the West Bengal government has decided to provide them food. For those purposes, the government has launched a scheme name Mamata kitchen (Didir Rannaghar).
The objective of the scheme:
The scheme’s main aim is to provide the food to the migrant workers or poor people of the state who have lost their job during a lockdown situation as we know that many people in India have lost their job during a lockdown situation. So the financial condition of the people whose job is lost becomes weak.
They are seeking help from the government. The Bengal government will provide the food dish to the migrant worker and poor people at a reasonable price. The worker will get the food under this scheme at only Rs.5.
The government will give this reasonable price food to the poor people and migrant workers during the time of Durga pooja. The kitchen in which the foods are made for the worker is named as a community kitchen.
As per the government information, the community kitchen will work form 11 am to 3 pm of the day. The government will provide every food with a different menu. The community kitchen will only cook vegetarian food so that the government will provide only vegetarian food to the state’s migrant workers and poor people.
Many of the food includes rice, dal, mixed vegetable, Shukto, Khichdi, and papad. The government will serve this type of delicious food to the worker. With this scheme’s help, the poor people will get some food, and they do not have to suffer without food because of their weak financial condition.
Benefits of the WB Mamata Kitchen scheme:
In between the COVID-19 situation, this scheme will become a boon for migrant workers and poor people. As the supreme court gives permission to allow the Durga pooja in the West Bengal to consider the terms and conditions of social distancing, the West Bengal government will provide the food to the worker is a good decision of the government.
However, the Mamata kitchen has started its function in many parts of the West Bengal state. For the time being, in all the West Bengal districts, the government will implement this scheme.
In addition to food, the government of West Bengal was thinking of offering new clothes to the poor people and migrant workers. The government is planning to distribute these new clothes to wear new clothes during the Durga pooja and upcoming festive seasons.
