HYDERABAD: The government on Thursday conceded the demand of the Opposition for mandal-level panels represented by leaders of all parties to scrutinise the ongoing elimination of white ration cards. The concession was made by Chief Minister K. Rosaiah during Question Hour in response to Leader of Opposition N. Chandrababu Naidu's demand that a transparent system be developed to ensure the cards were not weeded out in villages out of vengeance against political rivals.
