He completely disassociates himself from the photos of CM allegedly on the ration kits saying that we are not concerned about it, provided there is no delay in this pretext. No such kits have reached here," Brar says.

"We do not want to be defamed as being depicted that ration is sent to the MCs," alleges Brar.

Booth level officers(BLOs) be deputed to distribute ration as there are about 1000 votes per booth and they know better about families," Brar demands.

“We stand by the union and Punjab government to fight the Corona Virus,” Mantar Singh Brar, former Kotkapura MLA, and CPS.

 Faridkot: Former Akali MLA from Kotkapura and the chief parliamentary secretary has demanded transparency in the distribution of Ration to the needy in his constituency Kotkapura.

Speaking to the Tribune over the phone, Brar said that his party stands by the Narendra Modi led government in the center and also support the Punjab government led by Captain Amarinder Singh in this time of crisis, but some of his party supporters complain that the ration distribution is being done through the congress workers, instead of Akali MCs, as it is being portrayed to defame them.

“Actually, we do not want the distribution of Ration through our MCs, we want the distribution of Ration through Booth Level Officers who know the condition of the public better than anyone else. It is a general perception that the MCs are involved in the process of the distribution of Ration, which is not so. The municipality has been expired its term on March 9 and we want the distribution of ration either through the real social workers or BLOs. But I have received many complaints that the congress workers are distributing ration who is partial,” alleged Mantar Singh Brar.

Brar claimed that his party had 21 MCs while congress had only four and they had met the DC Faridkot KS Raj on March 30.

“He had assured us that the distribution of ration would be without any political interference and directed SDM Kotkapura to ensure transparency. But after that, some improvement is there and it is not complete because of the pressure from above,” Brar alleged.

He also cited an example of his village Sandhwan where he said that there are nearly 2700 votes, and out of them, about 70 percent population is poor.

“Only a small number of kits had reached there someday before while there was a great need of it. So we are distributing the kits with the help of NGOs and religious organizations,” Brar claimed.

He also disassociated himself from the controversy that ration kits have the photos of the CM.

“At this time, we are not concerned about it. (About photos). We are rather concerned that there should not be any delay in the distribution of ration and it should not be politically motivated,” said Mantar Singh Brar.

Brar alleged that despite the district administration being fair, congress office bearers and workers are favoring their party workers.

'The former congress MCs or so-called social workers who have an affiliation to the congress party are distributing Ration in the unknown areas to them. It is not fair. so we want equal distribution of ration the needy irrespective of any political affiliation," he said.
