The Bharatiya Janata Party condemned the Food and Supplies Department for not providing the ration under Public Distribution System to the ration card holders.
In a joint statement,District President Shakti Prakash Devshali and mandal presidents said the ration card holders are being harassed a lot as the Food and Supplies Department have not distributed the ration to them for the last two months.
They added that the Public Distribution System of Chandigarh has totally collapsed. The issue has been brought to the notice of concerned officials several times but nothing has been done.
Party leaders said that for last few months,the items of PDS were not distributed among the public. The poor people have to purchase ration from open market which is out of their reach and the situation is going from bad to worse.
They added that if the department fails to distribute the ration,the district unit of the BJP will gherao the office of District Food and Supplies Officer.
