Congress holds protest; Availability of ration at Govt. Depots demanded

JAMMU, Jan 23: A strong protest of Congress workers of Jammu East Constituency led by Shri Vikram Malhotra, General Secretary JKPCC was held today at Panjtirthi, Chowk Chabutra against  the non-availability of ration at the Government Depots in Jammu City.

The hundreds of Congress activists assembled at Panjthirthi Jammu, carrying banners in their hands  amidst chanting  of slogans “ Modi je Bashan Dena Band Kari, Ration Dena Shuro Karo”.

Speaking on the occasion  Mr. Vikram Malhotra expressed serious concern over the non-availability of ration at the Govt. depots in Jammu City and elsewhere in the State. He said that general public especially the poor who cannot afford to purchase ration on higher rates in open market are suffering  the most.

He said that about 1700 Quintals Atta, 4000 Quintals Rice and 500 Quintals Sugar was pending for supply to Depots. But the position is that the PDS staff has gone for strike and  there is nobody to look to the problems of People.

PCC General Secretary criticized BJP legislatures who were given mandate by the people of Jammu with the hope that they will serve them better but unfortunately BJP legislators and  leaders have gone  hibernation  and miserable failed to serve the people of Jammu. It is most unfortunate that Prime Minister Mr. Narinder Modi delivers lecturers more and works less, the result of which  is that the general population is suffering for want of essential commodities of life i.e ration, water, power, medicare facilities etc.

He urged upon the Governor to intervene in the matter and demanded strict action against Director Food and Supplies for depriving people of ration in this extreme weather.

Prominent among those present on the occasion includes S/Shri Thomas Khokher-Secretary PCC, Ricky Dalotra,  Rinku Mehra, Balbir Singh, Michal Wazir,Babbu Shah,  Sandeep Singh,  Jugal Kumar, Kunal Kohli, Sandeep Gandotra, Amit Sharma, Smt. Bimla Devi, Menakshi Kumari, Rama Sharma, Swarn Kanta, Anoop and others.
