Ambedkar Park premises in Ashokapuram.

Each kit contained 1 kg salt, 1.5 litre cooking oil, 800 gm channa, 800 gm horsegram, 800 gm wheat flour and 800 gm ragi flour.

Volunteers appointed by the Department of Information and Public Relations, Mysuru, as ‘Corona Warriors,’ under the guidance of the Department Assistant Director Raju, packed these ration kits and distributed them to ensure the kits reach the genuine beneficiaries.
