CAPD officials involved in ration black marketing
AUTHORITIES IN SLUMBER
Kulgam, July 18: The officials of Consumer and Public Administration Distribution (CAPD) department here are allegedly resorting to black marketing of ration leaving the consumers high and dry.
“Tonnes of ration are being ferried in the auto-rickshaws and Tata mobiles during night hours by the officials in the CAPD department everyday and then sold to the shopkeepers at exorbitant rates,” highly placed sources told Greater Kashmir.
They said the practice had been going for many years at Tengbal
Mahipur, CAPD circle which is entitled to supply ration to the villages of Tengbal, Mahipur, Nelaw , Pariwan, Kakran, Wukai, Harigam, Kasawhalan, Bumrath and Aadoora.
“The ration supply is being unloaded at the ration depot of the Commission Based Center (CBC) dealer of Mahipura, located at his residence, instead of the CAPD godown. From there, said CBC dealer in connivance with the supervisor of Tengpora-Nelaw circle, who happens to be the son of the supervisor of Tengbal-Nelaw circle and Assistant Director, CAPD , Kulgam while supplying some of it to the respective dealers, dumps a huge quantity and then resort to black marketing,” sources revealed.
Greater Kashmir is in possession of some exclusive pictures, wherein the CAPD officials are seeing ferrying ration in auto-rickshaws during late night hours in order to sell it to shopkeepers and certain households at exorbitant rates.
The locals have been complaining that they are being deprived of the ration by the CAPD officials.
“We have been craving for a single grain of rice, but the CAPD officials always provide excuse of scarcity of ration,” said some of
the locals owning a Below Poverty Line (BPL) card.
They said though they apprised the higher ups many a times about the black marketing of ration in their area, but to no avail.
Director CAPD, Waheed Tak when contacted assured of looking into the matter and taking stringent action against the offenders.
