Representatives clarify over the allegation of stealing PDS rice

Imphal, Feb 22: Six MLAs’ representatives of District today clarifies that there is no foul-play while distributing PDS rice meant for the beneficiaries under NFSA for the Bishnupur District and the charge put upon them is baseless.
Speaking to media persons at Manipur Press Club, Oinam Chandrababu Singh, one of the representatives said that the news circulated in today’s morning local daily and ISTV stating PDS rice meant for the beneficiaries under NFSA for Bishnupur District for 8 months has been stolen by staff, agent, nominee and contractor of each constituency of the district is a baseless news, there is no such fault play carried out in each constituencies of Bishnupur district.
Moreover, the MLAs’ representatives haven’t heard or known to them of the so called Demand Committee Against Erratic PDS Supply Under NFSA – 2013, he added.

Chandrababu also said that the representatives and the members of the so called demand committee haven’t met or talk regarding the PDS rice weather it should be dispatch to the beneficiaries or not.
Beneficiaries of six assembly constituencies under Bishnupur District are also getting the same amount of PDS rice under NFSA same as that of the 60 assembly constituencies of Manipur State.
As the representatives have done the clarification, it will be a waste to throw words from each ends in the future, Chandrababu asserts.
