‘Household survey faulty’

Special Correspondent

KADAPA: Members of Kadapa Zilla Parishad on Thursday dubbed the ongoing integrated household survey to detect ineligible beneficiaries of ration cards, pensions and Indiramma houses ‘lopsided’.

The members found fault with the survey alleging that ration cards of several eligible beneficiaries were being scrapped. Congress MLA of Mydukur D.L. Ravindra Reddy sought steps to ensure that genuine beneficiaries were not put to hardships.

Stating that the people were agitated that genuine ration cards were being withdrawn, Kadapa MLC Y.S. Vivekananda Reddy added that it would negate the government’s intentions.

Rayachoti MLA G. Srikanth Reddy alleged that a large number of ration cards were scrapped in Rayachoti Municipality and sought an inquiry into it. Kamalapuram MLA G. Veerasiva Reddy demanded scrapping of ration cards in the possession of fair price dealers. ZP chairperson D. Jyothi Reddy, MLAs P.M. Kamalamma and K. Srinivasulu, ZP vice-chairman Devanatha Reddy and some ZPTC members sought a foolproof survey.

JC’s assurance

Joint Collector M. Girijasankar assured the members that he would examine the cards placed in the ‘doubtful’ category. Duplication in entries and bogus cards would be scrapped, he said.
