Newspaper counter, Amar Ujala, Hathras
With the length of lockdown increasing in the face of ever-increasing corona infection in the district, people have rallied quickly to gather ration supplies. Sales of flour, pulses, rice, oil, ghee and spices rose by 50 percent compared to the previous month. Those who shopped in retail stores in mid-May are now buying and moving goods in early May. Many families bought an additional one month ration.
We have a large number of customers. Those who used to buy the ration of the month all at once bring the form of the essential goods as soon as the month starts and take the ration. It has the highest demand for flour, legumes, and rice.
-Anil Varshney, shopkeeper
Now the two-day lockdown has increased. The government can raise the lockdown to break the chain of transition. With this in mind, we’ve doubled the rations this month so there won’t be any problems during the lockdown.
-Goverdhan Sharma, customer
The government has been vigilant as the second wave of corona was intense. The lock has now been extended by two days. It will likely continue to increase, so this time more groceries will be bought.
-Anil Sharma, customer
Fearing an increase in the lockdown, in addition to food, people also store biscuits, chips, toffee, chocolate and other items for children so that they can be delivered to children in the house during the lockdown.
