The company representatives came to Heroor GP without any prior intimation to the GP.It was seen that when the labourers and their family members came forward to get their photos clicked, the staff kept them waiting citing software problem.

Further the staff members were also seen talking rudely to the beneficiaries. This raged GP former president C U Nataraj who said that the beneficiaries have come to get their photos clicked keeping aside their day’s work. “They do not deserve to be treated like this,” he said adding that if the smart cards cannot be issued to the beneficiaries on the same day then there is no point keeping the private company staff members in the GP.
