Sudha Devi, 30, has been queuing up at a government school in Delhi for the last four days in hope of free ration but to no avail. “They shoo us away. We just get bruised and scraped struggling in queues and then go back empty handed. They say come at 2 PM. When we return, they send us away again. We get nothing,” she laments. This is the story of several non-ration card holders in Delhi who have been turned back empty handed as many distribution centres have run out of stock.
