The fair-price shop in our area is ‘fair’ in name only. For what is the use of a fair-price shop if it doesn’t have those essential commodities which it is supposed to provide for the poor people. The owner of this shop is a very rude and dishonest person. Whenever the ration-card holders approach him for wheat, sugar or oil, he always says that the supply has not been received. There is no way to ascertain whether he is telling the truth or not. People have to go back grumbling. They can’t understand why the thing is not available at the fair-price shop when it is easily available in the black market. No inspector of the Food Supplies Department has ever visited the area to know the facts. People think that all the officials from top to bottom, are mixed up in this scandal. Only a thorough probe can bring ugly facts to light.
