AGARTALA, July 12 (TIWN): MP Shankar Prasad Datta has met Debasish Basu, the Addl.Secretary & Director of Tripura Food, Civil Supplies & Consumer Affairs Dept.

MP has shown him the flours which he collected from villagers at Khamtingbari, who said the flours were served to them by local ration shop.

CPI-M leaders on Monday had visited various places in deep ADC areas and when they were in Sinaikami Para of Khamtingbari, lined with Mandai area locals complained that such low quality’s flours are given to them which not only humans but even fish and pigs can not take.

MP Shankar Prasad Datta said, “The locals who complained about poor quality’s flour given to them which are unworthy to take for animals too, we asked them to bring that flour and to show us. When the villagers showed us the flours it was unbelievable ! How ration shops can give such flours ? The flour neither can be compared with soil, nor with cement. Not only this, the flours are full of insects and this is the reality of Tripura today”.The CPI-M leader further alleged, if any customer denies to take those flours at home, then they said no more flour will be given to them.

“We demand such kinds of pathetic food distribution should be stopped immediately. This is just the sample of flour, but rice and other items are also left in same condition”, the MP said.
