JAMMU, Feb 7: The workers of Dogra Front & Shiv Sena under the leadership of president Ashok Gupta took out a procession in R.S Pura against the non availability of ration since past five months which has led to a lot of public resentment.
To highlight the alleged negligence, irregularities and irresponsible attitude in making the proper ration distribution and keeping the genuine BPL Card holders away from their allotted ration quota, a large number of registered consumers held a protest demonstration against Food Civil Supplies & Consumer Affairs Department under the leadership of Ashok Gupta.
Gupta stated that the distribution of ration in the Valley is done by the salesmen who are the permanent employees of the Stated Government but in Jammu the dealers are given the task due to which the ration doesn’t get distributed. Gupta said that Jammu & Kashmir is a part of one State then why there is variation in the distribution system.
The dealers are on strike in the Main city area of Jammu so to curb the shortfall the State Government has transferred some of its ration dealers from the areas of R.S Pura and Chattraiya to cope up with the supply which has led to the shutting of ration shops in the area of R.S Pura.
