Bhimavaram: Reacting to the call given by the state Joint Action Committee of ration shop dealers to go on mass leave from December 15 to stress on their long pending demands, the representatives of ration dealers in Veeravasaram mandal gave a leave notice to Tahsildar here on Thursday. They raised slogans in support of their demands.
Talking to reporters, they said that they had submitted a representation to officials in this regard on October 26 itself. They said that they had decided to make a success the dealers meeting scheduled to be held in Vijayawada on December 20.
Following the strike by the ration dealers, the supply of Chandranna Kanuka by government is likely to face obstruction. The dealers have also not paid advance demand drafts for supply of commodities.
The higher officials have issued notices to the dealers warning them of stern action, if they failed to supply the commodities and Chandranna Kanuka to ration card holders as per schedule.
