Srinagar: Despite the repeated assurances of the state dispensation that free ration shall be provided to the people for six months after Septembers ravaging floods, people from various valley areas are up in arms against the ration scarcity.
According to the KNS correspondent, people from scores of areas of Srinagar and other valet parts said that the CAPD has completely failed to provide free ration to the people with the black marketing of this essential commodity taking new toll in the flood hit regions of Kashmir valley.
People of Lal Bazar, Srinagar accuse that the concerned CAPD depot has not even provided a single bag of the free ration to the locals despite various families affected by floods are taking shelter in the area. They said that despite repeated requests to the concerned officials no action into the matter has been taken by the government.
People from various other areas of Srinagar also accuse some officials of the concerned department are in nexus with the people who carry out the black marketing and that no assistance by the CAPD is being provided to the flood torn people of the areas.
They added that the CAPD senior officials bother least to look into the issues pertaining to the people and have never tried to put lid over the crises that are emerging every day since floods snatched everything in valley.
People also accuse that with the state dispensation earlier busy in conduction of polls, no serious effort by the CAPD has been made to mitigate peoples sufferings.
In scores of areas, people complain the scarcity of ration, kerosene and other essential commodities with no action into the issue taken by the state dispensation.
Meanwhile, after the repeated attempts, the director CAPD didnt answer the phone cals for his version of the story.
Pertinently, in past people at various areas of Srinagar took to streets and staged protest demonstrations against the governments failure to distribute free ration in the flood affected areas. Raising slogans for justice, victims alleged that CAPD never provided them free ration.
