Muktsar, April 8

The hunger strike by SAD councillor Parminder Singh ‘Pasha’, who is also the party’s district president of the SC wing, entered second day here on Wednesday. Pasha, son of former Malout MLA Baldev Singh Ballamgarh, has accused the district administration of having a biased approach in distributing ration among needy people.

“In my ward, nearly 500 families are yet to get ration. But the administration is neither ready to provide them ration nor conduct an independent inquiry into the distribution work. Some people have been approaching me to join me in the hunger strike. But I have stopped them just due to the curfew and the pandemic,” said Pasha.

He added, “Nobody from the administration has approached me so far. Before I started the hunger strike, officials had threatened me to face the treason case. I have simply been observing a hunger strike in an inn located on Goneana Road. I will continue to observe it till the ration is distributed among all needy people.”

MK Aravind Kumar, Deputy Commissioner, Muktsar, on Tuesday had said, “We have covered almost entire area and helped needy people. Besides, police personnel and volunteers of some NGOs have been doing good work. Some people are just doing politics and they will be dealt strictly. Further, the district leadership of all political parties is satisfied with the relief work. Earlier, some people had raised questions over the distribution of ration by the District Red Cross Society, but I have personally checked the records and found nothing wrong.”
