आदरणीय प्रधानमंत्री जी, खाद्य सुरक्षा लागू करने के साथ लक्षित सार्वजनिक वितरण प्रणाली में सुधार करना बहुत ही आवश्यक है, जिस तरह एल. पी. जी. को "पहल" के जरिये ऑन लाइन कर फर्जी सभी डोमेस्टिक यानि घरेलू कनेक्शन को समाप्त किया गया, ठीक उसी तरह टीपीडीएस को भी दुरुस्त करना होगा इससे अनाज की कालाबाजारी पर रोक लग जाएगी और देश को करोड़ों रुपये की बचत होगी, जिससे देश का विकास हो सकेगा ! इसी तरह किरोसिन तेल की कालाबाजारी और डीजल/पेट्रोल में मिलावट सहित उस पर सरकार की सब्सिडी की सीधी बचत होगी !

sarkar ko jarurt khadh padarth kaa mulya khud nirdharan karna chahiye. khali bil wagera lane se kuchh nahi hota hai , bajar me rate to coprate gharane hi tay karte hai . kahne ko population badhi hai magar pahle ki tulna me kheti bhi to badhi aur logon ki khurak ghati bhi hai . pahle se desh me anaj jyada ho raha hai magar jaata kahan hai aaj tak pata nahi chala .
yadi puri fasal ko sab logon ke hisab se divide karenge to koi bhi bhukha nahi rahega fir bhi kuchh log bhukhe sote hai.

Aaj agar Food security pr discussion ho hi raha h to mera esa manna h ki aaj agar totality me dekha jaye to sbhi restraurants me roj bhot matra me acha quality ka khana daily fekne me jata h usse kisika pet bhar skta h.agar is pr bhi kuch socha jae to ye sabhi k liye ek acha kaam hoga or food wastage hone se acha vo kisi Langar ya bhojanalay me diya jae to desh me bukha koi nai so payega...iske piche meri itni hi ek soch h ki koi bhi insaan kabhi bukha sona nai chahiye.kuch galat ho to maaf kre.

PDS can be improved by many ways. First thing to do is to clean up the PDS system to define and enforce the eligiblity criteria for it. State Governemnts have done it 5 yrs before and it is not the same today.
Convert / Modernize the PDS shops and ensure Govt does a direct marketing system with launch of each PDS as super store, so PDS is open to all general public and subsidy is granted only to eligible people based on AADHAR or any other National identity.
