"What is the point of having a District Magistrate and Collector, when they won't serve the poor people?," asks Anil, an irate resident of this village whose residents are being cheated by a corrupt ration dealer.
The ration dealer, in charge of ensuring that these people get the benefits of India's Public Distribution Scheme, takes more money than he should and provides lesser rations. Every officer approached by the residents, right from the Block Development Officer to Marketing Officer, has refused to follow through on an enquiry or fire the ration dealer.
The ration dealer himself says that officials above him take bribes from him, and with no other means, he siphons from the village residents.
The community has put their faith in Correspondent Reena to solve this issue, and she needs your help.
Call to Action: Please call the Sub-Divisional Officer of Katihar District on +91 9473191377 and ask him to take immediate action against all those involved in the corruption.
