    Govt should provide some facility to APL card holders also. If not Rs.1 per kg rice. They should provide at Rs.10/- and also other facility at better price. Lot of BPL card holders are well earning people better than APL card holders (Govt should cross check each & every quarter each and every BPL card holders assests and earnings)

    This is TOTAL INJUSTICE to APL Card holders….why should then we have a ration card…why the government made all of to undergo the ordeal of getting a ration card….
    when the government wants votes …they come to the APL families and seek votes …but they don’t want to give any benefits ….looks like APL card holders will have to starve and die !!!Shame on this government!!!

    If rice and wheat are not providing to APL card holders then there will be no use of taking APL ration card, Karnataka govt is making injustice for APL card holders. BPL card holders means below poverty line, but even a person who do coolie work also he will get min of 350 to 400 that means 6 days working he will get 350×6=2100 and he will get 8400 per month he stays in 2500 or 3000 rented house and rest what he will do? and he will cross 1 lakh per year if he gets benefit of rice and wheat and what APL card holder families will do… 🙁

    What is the criteria for the government to arrive at a decision of APL & BPL, whether it is based on total monthly income or anything else? People already having enough money are also registering themselves as BPL cardholders by influencing unduly with the officials of food & civil supplies department. No address / income verification of the persons has been taken by the department officials thereby causing great injustice with the genuine cardholders.

    Anybody is there to answer to the above?

      I don’t understand the logic of the government.When they want vote they come to APL people also. Why?.
      Secondly not even 1% of people in Bangalore are really BPL.There IT ENGINEERS drawing above 60k INR per month having BPL card but as an ex serviceman pensioner, I have APL card because i declared my pension correctly.
      When will the govt really check the BPL holders.

    What about wheat? Will APL families get wheat or that also stopped. Ration shop staff says there in no rice and wheat for APL Card Holders.

    When rice price is soaring at Rs.50 and above per Kg., APL families can’t afford to purchase at that high rate and will just have to think of alternative foods and sacrifice their quota of food grains to BPL families as government is also not in their favour. Karnataka government is doing a big injustice to all APL families. All APL families and middle class people should vote against Congress party in the forthcoming 2014 Loksabha Election to teach them a lesson.
