UKDF expressed gratitude to the MLA for distributing NFSA rice to all irrespective of cardholder or not and appealed to the MLA to start distribution of NFSA rice to cardholders as soon as possible.
Uripok MLA Khwairakpam Raghumani will not do politics on NFSA Rice, said Uripok Kendra Development Forum (UKDF) in a statement. Maintaining that the MLA has been distributing PMGKAY rice to all voters plus all children from the age of six to 17 years in the larger interest of people in the Uripok Assembly segment, UKDF said other constituencies also followed the same system.
It claimed that the NFSA rice which entails the distribution of rice to the NFSA cardholders is yet to be lifted from the godown. It was planned to be taken out from the FCS godown on Friday.
The new ration card has not been issued now and once the total number of beneficiaries of Uripok AC are confirmed, the NFSA rice will be distributed as per the directives, said the statement.
UKDF further said the MLA is providing rice to every family member to fill the gap. Every family member of Uripok Kendra is satisfied with the distribution of PMGKAY rice, it claimed.
Admitting that distribution of NFSA rice has been quite controversial in Manipur for various reasons, it said, “We also knew that there are many discrepancies in the selection of beneficiaries which need to be corrected.”
UKDF expressed gratitude to the MLA for distributing NFSA rice to all irrespective of whether they are cardholders or not and appealed to the MLA to start distribution of NFSA rice to cardholders as soon as possible.

On non-distribution of SK Oil in the constituency, UKDF clarified that it has been in the possession of the dealers.

MLA Raghumani believes in assisting the public in a transparent way,” it added.
