Imphal, May 14,
With the BJP led Government in the State, various schemes has been launched for the welfare of the people including the national Food Security Act where ration cards holder are made available with rations every months in every villages in the state.
Unfortunately, for Wangkhei A/C, distribution of the rations mainly rice which should be made available to the rations card holders of the constituency every month has turn un-regularised creating trauma for the general public depending on the rations.
In a press statement, Y Indrani Devi, Secretary All Manipur Nupi Marup (AMNM) states that when the association inquire about the none-distribution of the rations, the agency responsible for the distribution of the rations told them, some underground outfit has acquire all the rations meant for the card holders of the constituency, they were shock to heard such words and unacceptable, she states.
Fact is that those underground outfits will not hurt the sentiment of the poor by acquiring the rations pending for distribution for more than 6 months, 8 months, 10 months for each polling station of the constituency.
Instead the agents, MLAs’, Ministers along with concern office members working for NFSA might have acquire the rations for their own benefits illegally, Indrani asserts in the press statement.
Indrani further states that the association are not aware of the replacement of the old agents with new one, all they demands is to made available the rations under the NFSA every month.
In this regards, the association appeals the concern to look into matter and find out where the rations supplied under the NFSA have went missing rather than distributing to the card holders, Indrani maintain.
