Vasundhara Raje ‘rolls out’ Annapurna Rasoi vans
Chief minister Vasundhara Rajelaunched Annapurna Rasoi on the lines of Amma canteen to provide quality food at subsidized rates. The scheme was launched by Raje by flagging off the first mobile kitchen van from the Jaipur Municipal Corporation. The scheme is being undertaken in a public-private partnership mode. The vans will cover 80 urban areas in 12 districts in the first phase and aim at covering more areas in the second phase. Along with BJP state party president Ashok Parnami and senior members, including UDH minister Shrichand Kriplani, Raje tasted the food provided by the mobile rasoi. The scheme has been launched under the concept of ‘Sub Ke Liye Bhojan, Sub Ke Kiye Samman’ (Food for All and Respect for All).
This is an attempt to reach out to the urban poor and all working-class people and ensure they have easy access to hygienic and nutritious food. Though we will cover only 80 urban areas in 12 districts in the first phase, the facility will soon be extended to 300 places across the State,” said Raje, promising not to compromise on quality and hygiene.

On Thursday, it was launched at the seven-divisional headquarters—Jaipur, Ajmer, Bikaner, Bharatpur, Udaipur, Jodhpur and Kota—and five other districts—Pratapgarh, Dungarpur, Banswara, Baran, and Jhalawar
While 25 vans have been allotted for Jaipur, five each will conduct services in all other divisional headquarters. Jhalawar will get six vans, Dungarpur and Banswara four each, and Baran and Pratapgarh three each. The scheme will cover the remaining 21 districts in the second phase.
