Truckers' stir: KSRTC vehicles transport rations

In the wake of ongoing strike by lorry owners, the district administration on Saturday transported rice to be distributed under ‘Anna Bhagya’ scheme and other commodities to fair price shops in the taluk in Karnataka State Road Transport Corporation (KSRTC) vehicles.

The KSRTC vehicles transported rice from the godown of Karnataka State Food Corporation (KSFC), State Warehousing Corporation and Taluk Agricultural Produce Co-operative Marketing Society Limited (TAPCMS) to fair price shops.

The ration was transported under police protection. In the first phase, ration was supplied to shops in Hinkal, Bogadi and adjoining places. Officials claim that it takes one week to supply ration to all shops in the taluk. The supply of essential commodities has hit badly due to the ongoing strike by the truckers.
