Tarn Taran, March 26

Though the district administration has assured residents that essential commodities will be provided on their doorsteps, they are complaining of acute shortage of essentials.

On Wednesday the administration fixed timings of LPG gas agencies, petrol pumps, fodder stalls etc. but their numbers were yet to be made public.

SDM Rajnish Arora claimed that milk, milk products and other eatable items were being provided to residents. But on the contrary, residents of Mohindra Enclave, Deep Avenue, Sachkhand Road and many others localities were complaining that they were yet to get the supply of items.

Ajaib Singh, a resident of Fatehchak locality, Jagtar Singh, watchman of Deep Avenue and others said the vehicle supplying essential commodities was not seen in their localities. They expressed their ignorance about the cell number of the helplines.

Same was the position of Tonkkashtrya Mohalla, Baba Basta Colony and Sarhali Road residents. Gurpreet Singh of Noordi, Mangal Singh of Kot Dharam Chand Kalan villages, said the residents were getting the supply of milk only. They said a police team came to their villages to check the opening of the shops but did not spoke on the supply of essential items. They said LPG cylinders were delivered on Wednesday. We were yet to get animal feed, they said. Private health services shut down shutters today. Police personnel are facing tough time as during relaxation period people assemble in large numbers at pharmacy stores. The cell numbers of doctors and chemists have not been displayed.

Kar Sewa sect Dera Baba Jeewan Singh volunteers distributed food to the needy in the town.
