CRPF rebuffing the claims that the 'Jawans have run out of ration money' called the news report shared by Asaduddin Owaisi as 'incorrect.' According to official reports, PM Modi government paid the ration allowance arrears to over 2 lakh CRPF personnel for the month of July.
Personnel were paid Rs 22,144 per head under the Ration Money Allowance (RMA). "In this way, CRPF troops have already received an amount Rs 22,144 as Ration money in July which is equivalent to 6 months RMA (at present rates) and thus they have sufficient funds for messing," said the official statement.
The official confirmation of the Home Ministry debuked the contentions that "jawans have run out of ration money" and called it "baseless and preposterous" further adding that there is no crisis whatsover. It further stated that the RMA for the month of September will be paid soon.

Hence the contention that jawans have run out of ration money is baseless and preposterous and there is no crisis whatsoever. The RMA for September will also be paid shortly— Spokesperson, Ministry of Home Affairs (@PIBHomeAffairs) September 29, 2019
CRPF remains ever committed to the welfare of its jawans.
CRPF in a tweet said, "Process for payment of RM (approx Rs 3600) for this month is in progress, hence the contention that jawans have run out of ration money is incorrect."
Earlier on Sunday AIMIM chief Asaduddin Owaisi sharing a news report called out the BJP government for failing to spare monthly allowance to the CRPF Jawans.
He said: For large businesses, BJP gives a cash bonanza. For our brave CRPF personnel, Amit Shah can't spare 3k/month allowance. There cannot be a greater insult. This rhetoric of nationalism may get you votes but you cannot have it for dinner.
Earlier on Sunday, reports emerged claiming that the PM Modi government was affected by the economic crisis, causing a crunch in "ration allowance” of CRPF.
