DYFI stages protest against poor PDS

 
Addressing protesters at a rally demanding proper implementation of PDS, in front of the Deputy Commissioner’s Office here on Tuesday, Katipalla said that earlier citizens were getting rice, sugar, kerosene, soap, clothes and several other groceries at subsidised rates through PDS. However, now the government is showing reluctance in implementing the PDS, he said adding that citizens are being cheated by the government.

Chief Minister B S Yeddyurappa had promised 20 kilograms of rice at Rs 2 per kilogram to all poor families. However, his words still remain as a hollow promise, he said. As the state is facing a severe food security crisis, the government should take necessary measures to ensure efficient PDS, he added.
