Allegation of supply of substandard materials in Dhubri under ICDS

Deputy Commissioner of Dhubri had sealed a godown where rice and peas were stored for the children under ICDS on May 24 on the basis of the complain made by the Anganbadi workers of the Jamadarhat block. On Wednesday, Additional Deputy Commissioner Rima Barua along with some officials from the Food and Civil Supply Department of Dhubri visited that sealed godown for an enquiry. They collected the specimens of the rice and pea from the godown. The materials found there are of very sub-standard quality.


When contacted Nayan Kumar Das, Food Inspector of Dhubri admitted that the materials seemed to be of sub-standard nature. But he also commented that any conclusion was not possible until the final chemical analysis report came from the State Health Laboratory and it would require almost a month. CDPO Pranamika Phukon denied her involvement by saying that the above materials were stored by the previous CDPO and hence she did not have any idea regarding the material quality.


A per the available repot, out of 13280400 gm of rice and 5022000 gm of pea, 7000 kg of rice and 28000 kg of pea were already been distributed.
