Milk sellers in the area are in panic after the state government stepped up its vigil against the sale of adulterated milk under the Tandarust Punjab campaign. 

Teams from the Health Department have been conducting regular raids at shops selling milk and milk products and several samples have been collected throughout the district under the campaign.

People involved in selling milk by placing drums on roadsides have also vanished. There is a feeling of panic among milk sellers throughout the district.

Many milk sellers and shopkeepers closed their shops after rumours of the Health Department conducting raids spread in Jagraon two days back.

“The raids are usuallly conducted during festival season. But, the state government has increased its vigil on people selling adulterated milk and milk products. This has created fear among sellers,” said a milk seller.

People have appreciated the state government’s step against sale of adulterated milk.They have also demanded the state government to continue the drive in the future also.  Dr Andesh Kang, District Health Officer (DHO), said the drive against sale of adulterated milk and unhygienic eatables would continue in the coming days.
