Speaking to media persons at the BT Road head office, Secretary of CPI Manipur State Council, Dr Moirangthem Nara Singh said the NFSA had been implemented four months back in the country, however the beneficiaries are not receiving their due shares till today due to involvement of local MLAs and government officials.
NFSA had been implemented for the betterment of the people but the in the state of Manipur the flagship scheme is a flop show owning to the misconduct of the incumbent state government, Nara said.
Instead of providing rations to the people, some owners of fair price shops have been reportedly distributing rations only on paper. In most of the assembly constituencies, rations are not distributed regularly.
Highlighting the misconducts over distributions of rations under NFSA a team of CPI Manipur State Council had also submitted a memorandum to Chief Minister of Manipur on June 25 demanding to stop politicization of NFSA and immediate intervention. However, the government failed to take any actions till date, Nara lamented.
CPI wouldn’t allow exploitation of rights and would fight to render justice, said Nara while informing that the party would undertake various forms of protest demonstrations including mass rally highlighting exploitation of rights by concerned authority and agents of fair price shops.
