SRC asks Food Supplies Dept to check hoarding of food and essential commodities

Bhubaneswar: Special Relief Commissioner (SRC) Bishnupada Sethi today asked State Food Supplies and Consumer Welfare Department to take proactive measures to check the hoarding of food and essential commodities as the Cyclone Fani is expected to make landfall in Puri by Friday afternoon in Puri.

In a letter to Food Supplies and Consumer Welfare Department Secretary, Sethi said, “The threat of severe cyclone may create a panic situation wherein people will rush to buy essential commodities for storage and this may motivate some unscrupulous traders to resort to hoarding of food and cause artificial food shortage. In some place it may lead to untoward incident.”

The SRC asked the Food Supplies and Consumer Welfare Department to take proactive measures to check hoarding and spiralling of food crisis and ensure that supply line of foods and other commodities.
