Not mobile but give more subsidized food to people below poverty line

My name is Kailash Male. I am calling from Ratlam district of Madhya Pradesh. I want to react on the news that govt is going to spend Rs 7,000 crores on giving mobile phone to people living below poverty line. I want to say it is corruption to win votes. Instead govt should spend this money in subsidizing food to the same people. I want you to encourage a debate on the subject. For more Male ji can be reached at 09926948043
