A team of All Manipur Students’ Union (AMSU) today found PDS rice being sold at various shops located at Nagamapal, Thangal Keithel and Masjid Road area. The student volunteers found the PDS rice sold in the shops during a drive conducted for checking price hike of essential commodities. The student volunteers vandalize shops which were found selling the essential commodities at high price, however a team of police led by City OC Sudhir intervened and brought the situation under control. Speaking to reporters at AMSU Head Quarter, General Secretary of the student body, Manjit Sarangthem said that the students’ body had already appealed the state government to keep the price of the essential commodities under control within September 9. He said the volunteers of the students body were amazed when they found PDS rice which are meant for distribution to people living below poverty line selling at the shops located at Thangal Keithel, Masjid road and Nagamapal.
Manjit further added that the rice sold at the shops were found to be adulterated by mixing stone and unclean particles which can be harmful to human health.
“Such an act of selling adulterated rice is nothing but to kill the Manipuri people by slow poisoning”, said Manjit. He further blamed the CAD and PD Minister Moirangtem Oken for allowing to sell the PDS rice at commercial shops and demanded immediate clarification from him. He also slammed the government for its failure to control the price of essential commodities and said that there is no use for CAD& PD.
