Complaint against non-supply of PDS items
SHILLONG: The CSWO has lodged a complaint with the East Khasi Hills Deputy Commissioner (Supply) alleging that some residents of Mawripih (A) were not being issued food items under the Public Distribution System.
The CSWO complained that the village heads and the PDS dealer of Mawripih A, were trying to distribute stale PDS rice which they had stocked for months together and were not allowing the villagers to even choose better quality rice from the huge stock of rice stocked in a temporary godown of the dealer.
According to the CSWO, the villagers had lodged an FIR against the dealer and the village committee members who had denied them the PDS.
The CSWO sought action against the perpetrators of such crimes against the poor, helpless and illiterate villagers of Mawripih A who were being denied their right to food.
