Citing the Comptroller and Auditor General of India (CAG) report, which highlighted “lapses” in the public distribution system, Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Tuesday said that the Aam Aadmi Party government’s proposed scheme for home delivery of rations would have destroyed the ‘ration mafia’.

Mr. Kejriwal said in a tweet: “Extract from CAG report. This is what LG trying to protect when he rejects Doorstep delivery of rations. Entire ration system in grip of mafia protected by political masters. Doorstep delivery wud hv destroyed this mafia [sic]”.

In another tweet, he said: “Exemplary action will be taken against the guilty in each case of corruption or irregularity pointed by CAG. No one will be spared.”
