Itanagar, July 6: The Kurung Kumey district unit of All Nyishi Youth Association (ANYA) has urged the State government to ensure regular supply of food items at Tali and Pip-Sorang circles in the district, besides urging for instituting an enquiry to find whether ration items meant for BPL, AAY and IAY beneficiaries of the area were being utilized judiciously.
The Association has alleged that the ‘poor’ beneficiaries of the remote areas under the aforesaid schemes were not getting regular ration items for the last one year due to non-availability of rations in fair price shops and as a result, they are facing a starvation-like situation since then.
It requested the government to look into the precarious situation and constitute an enquiry team to ascertain whether there was any leakage of BPL, AAY and IAY rations over the period. It also called for introduction of air-dropping system for supply of APL rice so that the people of the area could get their share of ration items.
The Association, meanwhile, claimed that 80 per cent of teachers posted in Kurung Kumey district, were yet to join their respective schools in the district even though the academic session has already started from June 1 last.
It urged the DC to take serious note of it and initiate stern action against the teachers for their alleged negligence of duties.
