Kashi vendor invites PM Modi to his momos cart

Prime Minister Narendra Modi was all praise for the initiative of Varanasi-based street vendor Arvind Maurya, a beneficiary of PM SVANidhi scheme, who told the PM that he offered a free momo (steamed dumpling with some form of filling) each to those who wore masks and followed social distancing to keep Covid-19 at bay.

When the prime minister enquired if he was getting benefits of any other government scheme, Arvind said he got free ration under Deen Dayal Upadhyaya Antyodaya Yojana.

He also appreciated Shramyogi scheme saying under it, contribution of Rs 150 per month will fetch him Rs 3,000 per month when he was 60. Expressing happiness that Arvind was getting benefits of many government schemes, the PM conveyed his ‘Pranam’ to the people of Kashi through him.
