Sangrur, October 27

The allotment of cartage tenders to the tune of crores of rupees for paddy and wheat in Sangrur city has come under the scanner. Members of the Punjab Pradesh Palledar Mazdoor Union, Sangrur, have alleged that the authorities have allotted the work to a bidder, who had used their documents without their consent. They have announced to launch an agitation if the tenders are not cancelled immediately.

"The senior authorities of the Food and Civil Supplies Department have allotted the tender to an individual, who used our Aadhaar cards without our consent. Since the allotment of tender, we have been running from pillar to post," said Satwinder Singh Kaka, former union head.

According to sources, the District Tender Allotment Committee (DTAC) had allotted the tender last month, which includes works of loading and unloading of wheat and paddy and transportation within 8 km from the city.

"Around 400 members of our union have been sitting idle and are on the verge of starvation," said Kaka. District Food and Civil Supplies controller Tarvinder Singh Chopra denied the allegations, saying DTAC had allotted the tender after due process. — TNS
