Theft of Govt Grains

The State Government accumulates the foodgrains stocks for Public Distribution System, Midday Meal Schemes for school, ration for rehabilitation homes and Deen Dayal Rasoi Schemes.

Now it has come to fore that massive racket of crores of rupees worth such foodgrains stocks are stolen or lifted out with the connivance of high Government officials hand in glove with traders. This massive pilferage is going for the last so many years.

Strangely the such foodgrain stocks were brought here by rail and roads from far of districts of Balaghat and Mandla and sold at Bhopal. The first information reports were filed against few persons of Government service and traders.

Bags of foodgrains were shifted to Mandis and sold on high prices to private grain traders. Even the persons handling the schools and madarsas are found involved in this racket.

It appears this racket is going on for so many years must have costed the state exchequer loss of crores of rupees. The food racket is emerging as another “Vyapam” that is education field and it is in food sector. The Government foodgrains are meant for lower class but it is being devoured by the corrupt officials and dishonest traders.
