Jaya orders free rice to mosques for Ramzan


CHENNAI: The state government on Thursday ordered supply of free rice to mosques to prepare gruel during the holy month of Ramzan beginning next week.

In a statement, chief minister J Jayalalithaa said she ordered distribution of 4,600 tonnes of rice to about 3,000 mosques.
“The scheme has been largely welcomed by the Muslim community. As I have received requests for continuation of distribution of rice this year too, I have issued orders for distribution of rice to the mosques,” she said. This scheme was introduced during her previous tenure in 2001.

District collectors have been directed to release sufficient quantity of rice to the mosques, she added. The scheme would benefit 3,000 mosques and cost the exchequer 2.14 crore, the release added.
