Rejecting the allegations leveled by Akali Dal, the food and supplies minister Bharat Bhushan Ashu Congress-led government have always safeguarded the interest of depot holders.

Ashu said this had become a habit of Akali Dal to blame the government over false and fabricated issues.

Amongst the major demands raised by depot holders in wake of the ongoing COVID-19 crisis, Ashu said that sanitizer masks and gloves have been provided to them. He also said that regarding other demands including insurance, a meeting after consultation with depot holders has been called today at Anaj Bhawan in Chandigarh. 

He also said that after the tragic death of depot holders brother Anil Mahajan in Kapurthala, he had issued strict directions to all district administrations of state to ensure stringent arrangements during the distribution of wheat to avert any such incident in future besides directing the health department to ensure strict adherence of all social distancing and health protocols.

He also disclosed that Urad Dal being sent by NAFED under PMGKAY was of very inferior quality due to which some trucks of pulses have been returned and at some places, pulses were being distributed after cleaning.

Further, he said if Akali Dal is really worried about depot holders it should take up the issue of unnecessary delay in the supply of pulses and its low quality with centre.
