Kreeri villagers demand action against FP shop owner

BARAMULLA: Residents of Hail village of Kreeri on Wednesday staged a protest outside the Deputy Commissioner Baramulla’s office against alleged malfunctioning of Fair Price shop run under the CAPD in the village.
The protesters demanded action against the shop owner for shifting the shop from the village to his home and not adhering to proper ration distribution.
The deputy sarpanch of the village Abdul Latif Bhat while talking to reporters said the dealer shifted the shop to his home and is not distributing food grains properly among the villagers.

Another protester Mohammad Afzal said that there is total breakdown of the rationing setup in the area and poor are not getting their quota of ration.
