News: Disburse rain relief to poor alone, demands NGO

PUDUCHERRY: Puducherry government’s Rs 1,000 rain relief for all, irrespective of whether rich or poor, does not seem to be a prudent decision.

The government should identify those affected and help them through relief funds, stated a press release from an NGO, Federation for People’s Rights.

Stating that the NGO will campaign against corruption during the Human Rights Day on December 10, the release added that CBI investigation should be ordered into the alleged scam in procuring materials for the distribution of free sarees and dhotis during Diwali and the alleged irregularities in the examination for the selection of deputy thasildars.
