    How can they illegally store rice from PDS without the collision/support of the Government public distribution system??? Why don't the Police book FIR against those people involved??? Someone must have not received his share of commission or bribe so they complained to Police. Most of the PDS store illegally selling the items to shops or hotels and individuals for higher profits or people buy from the PDS and some selling to others.

    The same public are selling these Rice to these hoarders who in turn sell to Mills , mills re polish it and sell to hotels at higher price. The person caught is just one of conduit , everyone are part of this Sin. Poor farmers who slog gets Tenga because of this Govt appeasement vote politics. One day this will become very expensive for the nation when there are more takers than producers.
