It is clearly visible in the viral video that Kotdar is telling the card holders that we have received instructions that five kilos of straw should be taken from the card holders. Kotdar is saying that straw is needed. No one will be given ration without straw.
Uttar Pradesh (Uttar Pradesh) A strange act of Kotdar has come to the fore in Unnao. The Kotedar has told the villagers that if they do not come on quota with straw, then ration will not be given. People are upset and still in a state of confusion. Some people are going to the quota with straw in the bundle and then taking ration. Yogi (Yogi Adityanath) The government has put only one condition for getting government ration. If you are poor, then you will get government ration, but in Unnao, if you want to take ration, then instead of this, the kotdar will have to give chaff. This decree has been issued by the Kotdar of Akohari Gram Panchayat under Purva Tehsil.
This decree of the Kotedar remains a matter of discussion among the villagers and people are upset. There is an open threat from the kotedar, if you come to Kota and do not bring straw, then you will not get ration, no matter how poor you are. Whether you have a ration card or not, but if you are carrying straw, you will get ration. The video of villagers carrying straw on quota is becoming fiercely viral on social media. Despite this, the top officers of Unnao are not taking cognizance.
After all, at whose behest is the straw being collected?
It is clearly visible in the viral video that Kotdar is telling the card holders that we have received instructions that five kilos of straw should be taken from the card holders. Kotdar is saying that straw is needed. No one will be given ration without straw. The question is why is this straw being collected and on whose orders it is being collected.
Strict action will be taken against the culprits after investigation- DM
At present, no official statement has been issued by the top officials on this matter so far. On the other hand, District Magistrate Ravindra Kumar was talked to on the phone, he has told that this matter has not come to our knowledge yet. If something like this is going on in the district, then strict action will be taken after investigation. There is no such instruction from the government that ration will be given only after taking straw. Ration is being given to every card holder to every poor.
