“The flour we have brought from local ration supplier of CAPD turns black when we added water to make dough. People after eating chapati made with this dough developed constipation and other ailments. They were admitted in sub-district hospital Tral,” complains a local from Chandrigam.
The people of areas like Aaligund, Bargam, Nowpor, Amlar, Dadsara, Lalgam, Noorpora and Doonigund hamlets also lodged same complaints.
“Flour supplied by a ration shop here was of sub-standard quality. Half the quantity of grains was filled with clay, stones, unhusked flour, and rust,” said a consumer.
However, after repeated attempts the Director CAPD did not respond. Meanwhile, Food Minister Chowdary Zulifkar Ali assured probe and action in case the allegations prove correct.
