Mangaluru: Minister for food, civil supplies and consumer affairs U T Khader said that he has sought a report on allegations over illegalities regarding distribution of Anna Bhagya rice at a fair price shop (FPS) run by the government in Bengaluru.
Activist Ravi Krishna Reddy, who is campaigning to contest as an independent candidate from Jayanagar constituency, had posted a video on Facebook, alleging that a FPS run by the Karnataka State Food and Civil Supplies Corporation in Thilaknagar, has been cheating poor families. In the video, which has gone viral with more than 2.84 lakh views and over 6,800 shares, Reddy has shown that the FPS is giving less quantity of rice to poor families under the Anna Bhagya scheme. “
Khader said he has already sought a report from officials of the food and civil supplies department in Jayanagar, soon after he came to know about Reddy’s post on Facebook. “I received a message yesterday about the incident on Friday. I immediately asked officials to submit a detailed report on the incident. I thank Ravi Krishna Reddy for bringing the issue to my notice. I will take necessary action to suspend the staff if the allegations are found to be true,” Khader said.
