What ails fair price shops

The fair price shop dealers in the BTAD areas are worried over the suspension of sugar supply across the state. They further have expressed concern over lack of facilities for the fair shop owners. These issues came up for discussion when they held their two days annual convention in Kokrajhar which concluded on Sunday.  

 The All India Fair Price Shop Dealers’ Federation general secretary Biswambar Basu attended the open session at the Balajan Tinali Gaurang High School ground on Sunday. Basu said that the dealers have not been receiving proper facilities for implementing the government schemes. “The suspension of sugar distribution is unfortunate. The common people have been bearing the brunt,” said Basu.    

Federation President Puspa Raj Deshmuk, Vice president Prahalad Bai Modi who attended the convention demanded proper care for the common peoples to enable them to get ration and other needy goods at fair prices. All BTAD Fair Price Shop Dealers’ Association president Deben Boro presided over the open session.
