The Naren­dra Modi gov­ern­ment plans to re­struc­ture the Food Cor­po­ra­tion of In­dia. Is this a wise step?

Down to Earth - - LETTERS -

It is bet­ter to start afresh than to awaken a 60-year-old rus­tic mam­moth. A proper work cul­ture can only be en­forced through new ini­tia­tives.

SYED RAZA IMAM RIZVI This is an ex­cel­lent step by the gov­ern­ment. Hope the new setup would fo­cus more on ef­fec­tive dis­tri­bu­tion of food­grains.

PRA­VAN­JAN MO­HA­P­A­TRA This is a much-needed move. The pre­vi­ous gov­ern­ments never took any ef­fec­tive step to stop food wastage dur­ing stor­age. Mil­lions of poor in the coun­try went hun­gry while food­grains were rot­ting at FCI godowns.

SHA­KEEL MAKARANI Re­struc­tur­ing FCI will be an up­hill task be­cause those who gain from the en­ter­prise are hand in glove with cor­rupt politi­cians and bu­reau­crats.

IN­DRANI GHOSH The Food Cor­po­ra­tion of In­dia is noth­ing but a white ele­phant.
