Bathinda, October 28

A day after wheat flour meant for distribution as part of Covid relief package was found dumped in the Joggers Park area, here, SAD workers led by senior leader Sarup Chand Singla protested in front of Finance Minister Manpreet Singh Badal’s office and demanded a thorough probe and strict action against erring officials.

  • Marking a probe into the allegations, Bathinda Municipal Commissioner Bikramjit Singh said, “A residential building in the Joggers Park area is being used for storing food items. Some people are linking the food stored there with the dumped flour.”

AAP MLA Baljinder Kaur, along with office-bearers of district unit of the party, conducted a press conference and sought a strict punitive action. “Nothing could be more unfortunate than dumping food that was to be distributed among the needy during the lockdown. We demand a thorough probe by a sitting judge of high court in the matter,” said Baljinder Kaur. She further alleged that the distribution of ration during the lockdown was used to gain political mileage and those in proximity of influential leaders hoarded it.

Singla, too, targeted the government and demand a thorough probe. — TNS
