AGARTALA, Aug 1 (TIWN): BJP continues its hypes on Covid help to the poor amid opposition parties allegations about corruption in ration distributions. But the claim of the BJP leaders about no crisis in pandemic failed to match with the reality-check on ground. In a ground survey it has come out that poor people are resented, upset at the Govt as they did not get any help from it during the Covid period which started from 2020 and massive work crisis is being felt everyday. Even if the Govt has helped, it's for name-sake, insufficient. Talking to a woman who was expecting work and waiting for the customers at Battala, Agarta said, "Only death has remained an option for us. Only God knows why we are not getting work. Many of us do not have our own houses. Rs. 2,500 rent we have to pay per month. It has been 15 days, I am not getting work. Don't know what to do.........."

Another old woman alleged that she is not getting any work for 22 days. She said, "I have nobody to look after me. No option to survive. Only 5 kg of rice I get in ration but what happens with that much ? Don't know how to survive".
