Bathinda, July 4

Protesting against “biased” ration distribution, residents of Tungwali village and members of the Dehati Mazdoor Sabha today raised slogans against the Food Supply Department and district administration.

The protesters alleged owing to political interference, scores of needy people were deprived of ration distributed by the government during the lockdown period.

Union leader Major Singh said, “Due to political influence, even people with adequate land and resources got the ration, but those who have no source of income did not receive it. This is not just about one village, such bias against the poor was seen in several other villages of the state.”

He said, “The administration must select representatives from the respective villages and form joint committees to ensure equal distribution of ration.” — TNS
