Ration shortage triggers protest
Bandipora, Feb 15: Hundreds of people from Chittibandi Gujarapti staged demonstration outside the Deputy Commissioner’s office against the shortage of ration.
“For last two months, more than 900 families are without ration. We are poor and cannot afford to buy ration from open market at exorbitant price,” they said, alleging the fair price shops in area were involved in black-marketing.
“Government should provide area sale centre to overcome the problem,” they added.
Tehsildar Mushtaq Ahmed Ganai said the DC Bandipora had instructed him to take up issue with the concerned department.
“The consumer affairs department has dispatched ration to area,” he added.
