State revoke more than 67K fake ration cards: CM (2/10/2020) 
Tripura government has cancelled 67,000 fake ration cards involving 2.81 lakh people, Chief Minister Biplab Kumar Deb said. “After the BJP (Bharatiya Janata Party) government came to power in March 2018, over 67,000 fake ration cards were revoked. These forged ration cards were issued during the previous (Left Front) government,” the Chief Minister said here on Sunday night while addressing an official function. Tripura Food, Civil Supplies and Consumer Affairs Minister Monoj Kanti Deb said: “After the computerisation of the Public Distribution System (PDS), over 67,000 fake ration cards were identified. Around 2,81,000 people were involved with these bogus ration cards.” The Food Minister told our reporter that of the 2,81,000 people, who are involved with the false ration cards, a large number of them might be of Bangladeshi nationals. “Despite thorough inquiry, there was no trace of majority of 2,81,000 people against whom various commodities were issued through the PDS,” the minister said. He said that the state government had recently started supply of pulses (Masoor Dal) through the PDS at a much discounted rate. Earlier, rice, flour, sugar, salt and kerosene are being distributed though the PDS at an inexpensive rate.
