Food Minister assures to streamline of PDS in Arunachal
NEW DELHI, July 8: Union Agriculture & Food Minister Sharad Pawar has assured all
possible assistance from his ministry to Arunachal Pradesh in meeting its food requirements
besides streamlining the PDS, which is literally the lifeline of the people of the
Five NCP MLAs of the state along with other party members under the leadership of
state unit president Ngurang Pinch today called on Pawar at Krishi Bhavan and had
a detailed discussion on various issues confronting the state.
Giving details of the representation submitted to the union minister jointly by the
five NCP MLAs, Spokesperson of the state NCP unit and MLA from Nyapin Bamang Felix
said that the top most priority of the party is to streamline the PDS. Therefore,
the party has pleaded the minister to issue a notification for establishment of a
separate FCI Regional Office at Itanagar by bifurcating it from the existing Guwahati
office. This, the legislators claim, would also decentralize the monitoring process
and enable strict implementation of PDS.
The MLAs also demanded complete taking over of PDS in Arunachal by the FCI. This,
Felix reminded, has also been endorsed by the present state government on several
occasions. The members lamented that instead of resolving the problems in PDS the
FCI and Food Ministry are taking recourses by initiating litigations and further
deteriorating the situation.
Citing that local contractors are not coming forward to lift food items from FCI
depots due to non release of payment and arbitrary litigations by the FCI and Food
Ministry, the members called for the Minister’s intervention to sort it out.
Other appeals in the representation are release of payment to PDS contractors who
are not involved in any litigations, enhancement of the PDS quota, creation of Assistant
Director for National Rural Horticulture Mission at Itanagar, immediate execution
of the Green Field Airport at Itanagar and special package for development under
Fisheries, Agriculture, Horticulture, Animal Husbandry, Medicinal Plants and other
elite departments held by NCP Ministers at the Center.
According to Felix, Pawar after giving a thought to the demands suggested a meeting
including all officials of the concerned ministries and the FCI with the MLAs. Pawar,
therefore, has convened another meeting on Monday of all NCP ministers, Secretaries,
Directors as well as the CMD of FCI to discuss the issue and evolve strategies to
assist Arunachal in all possible way.
Felix also revealed that Pawar has accepted the invitation to visit Arunachal Pradesh
soon, which when materializes would be Pawar’s maiden visit to the northeastern state.
The state NCP is expecting that Pawar in the visit would announce substantial packages
for the state that would certainly enhance the party’s image before the electorates.
Meanwhile, Pinch has extended gratefulness to the party president and union minister
for accepting the invitation to visit the state. He asserted that such positive response
from the leader would boost the morale of NCP workers in the state and the North
