Vice-President BJP Yudhvir Sethi today led a protest against the illegal distribution and unauthorized selling of CAPD ration in Peer Mitha area of the city.
On complaint of the local residents, Yudhvir took up the matter of illegal sale of the ration with the Deputy Commissioner, Jammu. The DC assured prompt action and an enquiry was ordered to probe the complaint.
While presenting complaint of the people, Yudhvir said that locals had been resenting against the non availability of ration but all of a sudden truck load of ration bags was duped by the CAPD department and underground distribution of the ration was done. He demanded a thorough enquiry and called upon the authorities to book those involved in pilferage and illegal distribution of ration meant for the common public.
“The ration and other commodities meant for public distribution should be supplied in a transparent manner and all those who try to black market the government ration should be booked under law,” he added.
The people thanked Yudhvir for prompt action and taking the matter to the higher authorities for early resolution of the issue.
