Imphal, June 16: The Food Security Act, conceived and implemented since May 2016 with the aim of providing essential foodgrains at affordable rates to persons living below the poverty line has been misutilised and are being converted into a money-making scheme by the powerful state government officials in collusion with FCS authorities while the real beneficiaries are left without anything for lack of influence and connections, asserted a press release of the proscribed group Kangleipak Communist Party Poirei Meitei Lup today. It further stated that FCS officials should verify and issue cards to the real beneficiaries only, and that under the Act, the full quota of ration should be given to the beneficiaries. The release further points out that the food grains to be distributed has been diverted and sold off by government officials and FCS staffs, declaring that the present uproar over non issue of ration cards and failure to distribute the rations should be investigated by an enquiry committee at the earliest, and anyone found indulging in any form of misuse of the allocated quantity of foodgrains will be severely dealt with without further warning. The release further requested the public to report any anomaly in this regard to the party immediately.
