The cases are ascending like in January this year, a 42-year-old man died due to hunger in Uttar Pradesh’s Bareilly.
The man from Bhamora village in Bareilly has left behind his old and ailing mother, who is 90 years old and according to neighbours, the family had “nothing to eat” which led to the man’s tragic death.
In november last year, a 50-year-old woman, Sakina, reportedly died of starvation after her husband, Ishaq Ahmed, was allegedly denied ration because she could not accompany him to provide biometric authentication at the ration shop.
The first case was from Jharkhand in September last year where the mother of an 11-year-old school-going girl alleged that her daughter died as the family stopped getting rice under the government’s Public Distribution System (PDS) as they had no Aadhaar card.
The BJP state witnessed the death in October of a 45-year-old rickshaw puller allegedly due to hunger on the other side, alleged starvation deaths were also reported from Karnataka (where the Congress is in power) last year. Reports stated that three brothers of a family died because they had no food to eat.
