Kozhikode: Kerala Minister for Food and Civil Supplies GR Anil on Thursday lauded ‘Mathrubhumi’ for its editorial titled ‘Puzhukkalari Nishedhikkaruthu’ (Do not deny parboiled rice) regarding the distribution of rice in ration shops across the state.
“As the Centre has cut down the supply of parboiled rice via ration shops, the people have been suffering for the past three months. Mathrubhumi has played a commendable role in bringing such issues to public attention,” said Anil.
The minister also congratulated the daily for taking up popular issues and wrote to Mathrubhumi Managing Director MV Shreyams Kumar lauding the efforts.
