Irregularities in BPL card distribution

Sambalpur: The residents of Kadampada in Hirakud town have alleged large scale irregularities in   distribution of below poverty line (BPL) cards and have urged the district collector to take action against the persons responsible for the irregularities.

Members of the womens` association of Ward No. 11 alleged that the councillor who was in charge of distribution of the cards had done irregularities in disbursing the cards. They said that the councillor had favoured some undeserving families while the deserving families were debarred from the BPL cards. However, the councillor Lalita Paikray while refuting the charges said that he was prepared to face any kind of inquiry.

The district collector Mrinalini Darswal has assured the association members to take stringent action against those found guilty after proper investigation of the incident.
