Brewing resentment against scarcity of ration, people accuse officials of selling in black

Early Times Report

JAMMU, Apr 20: The denial of ration to consumers has exposed the much talked about Food Security Act in the border State of J&K where consumers are not getting the ration especially those belonging to APL category for months together.
However the State Government in general and Food, Civil Supplies and Consumer Affairs Department are totally sleeping over the issue.
The delay in supply of ration to consumers is snowballing into a controversy with State Government alleging that it's quota of ration was reduced under the Act by Union Government.
The consumers in all the three regions of the State were put to many hardships as they could not get the ration in time after the new act was implemented in the State forcing people to take to streets.
There is hardly any day left when people donot take to streets against non simply of ration to consumers. Whether the activists of Shiv Sena, Ram Sena, Kranti Dal, West Assembly Movement, J& K Peoples Front or residents welfare associations in Samba, Kathua or Udhampur or any other part of the State people have lot of resentment against Government and the Department.
Recently people protested in Kathua against the Department and torched the effigy of the Minister. They demanded a high level vigilance probe saying the Department officials and depot holders in connivance sell the ration in black.
This being a serious allegation has not been looked into by Government which shows its total callousness towards the poor people of the State.
