Abohar, October 22

Hundreds of ration kits at the Block Development and Panchayat office in the Panchayat Samiti, sent by the state during the lockdown for free distribution among the economically weaker people, have been eaten up by insects.

DC orders inquiry

The SDM has sent a preliminary report to DC Arvind Pal Singh Sandhu after learning about the alleged lapse. The DC has told Additional District Magistrate Nawal Kumar to conduct an inquiry at the earliest and submit a report.

The kits were meant to be distributed in the villages that fall in the Balluana constituency, but the process could not be completed due to the alleged negligence of the staff. The constituency is represented by Congress legislator Comrade Nathu Ram, who belongs to Malout.

The ration kits comprised 10 kg flour, 2 kg sugar and 2 kg gram pulse. It appears that the packed food material may not be fit for consumption.

Nirmal Singh, BDPO, was not able to give an answer when the media approached him today. Jaspal Singh Brar, SDM, said these kits were provided by the Food Supply Department to the BDPO directly.
