Khurai committee refutes allegation on rice distribution

Staff Reporter

Imphal, March 30: Fair Price Shop Committee Khurai assembly constituency has refuted the allegation of misappropriating PDS rice in the assembly constituency and urged all concerned to refrain from spreading false information and creating public issue.

A statement of the committee issued by its secretary Khaidem Yamba dismissed report of partial distribution of the allocated rice and pending distribution for seven months in the constituency as baseless. Distributing the PDS rice allocation to all the families in the entire constituency during such crisis period is not an easy task and everybody should extend all possible support instead of spreading misinformation. It is unfortunate that some individuals are spreading such misinformation and creating an issue at such a critical juncture, it stated.

Informing that there is backlog allocation for eight months, which resulted in problems in getting the allocation for the month of April, the Committee said the issue is still unsettled.
