It is not often that you see the brother of a head of the state protesting on the streets for citizen issues.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi has been reasonably private about his family over the past many years, but now, another member of his family has stepped into the political spotlight– his own brother Prahlad Modi.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s brother Prahlad Modi, who also happens to be the vice president of All India Fair Price Shop Dealers’ Federation, sat in protest at Delhi’s Jantar Mantar over various demands of the organization.

“A delegation of All India Fair Price Shop Dealers’ Federation will submit a memorandum to Prime Minister Narendra Modi, listing our long-standing demands for the sake of our survival. With the current situation of hike in the cost of living and overhead expenditures for running shops, a raise of mere 20 paise per kg in our margin is a cruel joke. We request the Union government to grant us relief and end our financial miseries,” Prahlad Modi said.

He further stated that the All India Fair Price Shop Dealers’ Federation will hold a national executive meeting on Wednesday and based on that, their next course of action will be decided.

All India Fair Price Shop Dealers’ Federation national general secretary Biswambhar Basu told Press Trust of India that they also plan to meet Lok Sabha Speaker Om Birla.

It has also demanded that the ‘West Bengal Ration Model’ of free distribution be implemented across the country.

Further, the members said all due margins for all the states, including Jammu and Kashmir, should be reimbursed immediately.

“We also demand that edible oil, pulses, and LPG gas cylinders be supplied through fair price shops. Rural areas’ fair price shop dealers should be allowed to function as direct procurement agents for rice and wheat. Our demands were also raised by TMC MP Sougata Roy in Parliament,” Mr. Basu said, adding that their protests will continue until their demands are met.
