JAMMU, Apr 4: Deputy Mayor, Purnima Sharma has asked the Jammu Municipal Corporation (JMC), Councilors to make a list of needy people of their respective Wards and submit the same to the Commissioner JMC for getting essential food items for the needy people in the Wards.
In a press conference here today the Deputy Mayor informed that this was decided after her meeting with JMC Commissioner, Avny Lavasa as the Councillors were complaining about the ration being supplied by the JMC not going to the genuine needy people.
