Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao today asked the officials to take measures to sell Red Gram at Rs 135 per kg in the 129 stalls set up for the purpose.
Despite the government order to sell subsidized red gram, there are no stocks causing inconvenience to the people. Since the price of Red gram is more that Rs 200 per kg in the open market, the government set up many stalls to sell the same at subsidized rate.
It came to the Chief Minister’s notice that the stalls were running short of Red gram quota and the people are put to a lot of problems for buying this commodity at subsidized rate. He directed the Civil Supplies department to ensure supply of adequate subsidized Redgram at the stalls. (NSS)
