Protest by kerosene hawkers’ in Nagaon

5 Aug 2010 - 12:57am | DigantaTalukdar

The members of Assam Rajyik Kerosene Feriwallla Santha (ARKFS) marched a protest rally in Nagaon town on Wednesday against the recent decision of Food, Civil supply & Consumer Affairs Authority of Assam, regarding the fixation of the quantum of S.K.Oil at 440 liters a month for distribution among the consumers by street hawkers. The protesters alleged that the hawkers enjoyed distribution of 675 liters of Kerosene each month till June 2010. But the recent decision, which curtailed the quantity of S.K.Oil for street hawkers, will greatly hamper the poor hawkers.
