Club appeals for regulating PDS rice distribution

Staff Reporter

Imphal, March 29: Expressing discontentment with the manner in which the state authorities are distributing PDS rice to the public, Keishamthong Hodam Leirak Club urged the government to regulate the distribution system so that every person gets equal share.

In a statement, the club informed that distribution of rice for Keishamthong AC polling station no 12/14 to12/16 was made based on electoral roll and maximum share for each family is 5 persons irrespective of number of family members. As the electoral roll used for the distribution is an outdated one, several newly enrolled electors are denied their share of rice. Moreover, those under the age of 18 years are denied rice, which is a serious issue, it stated while urging for proper regulation from the state government.
