CNPO denounces 'delay in PDS rice distribution'

Chandel Naga People's Organisation (CNPO) has expressed strong concern over the delay in distribution of NFSA rice which was 'already procured on May 11 and stored in the district.'
Questioning the District Administration on the issue, CNPO has urged the Deputy Commissioner of Chandel to personally attend to the matter and release the PDS rice to the respective agents for distribution to the beneficiaries immediately.
The organisation also raised concern over the lapse in distribution saying that it might result in the hoarding of the lifted rice.
In view of the rise in COVID-19 positive cases, the organisation has also urged Chandel District Administration to provide PPEs to the Quarantine Centres as well as security to avoid violation of guidelines/protocol by inmates.
It also opined that shops that remain open for long duration is not commendable and urged District Administration to shorten it.
