Give reasons to argue for the following statements “Public Distribution System can ensure better food security for people.”

Answer :

1. It is the responsibility of the government to ensure food is supplied to the people at all times.


2. PDS can ensure food security by procuring food at proper intervals and using an adequate distribution method.


3. PDS ensures that BPL-Below poverty lines families re provided with foods at low prices.
