No fuel at gruel centres

Bijapur: Most of the 54 gruel centres opened in Bijapur district have run out of fuel. With most of the district-level officers going incommunicado, the elected representatives are finding it difficult to provide aid to the affected people. Making matters worse, there has been no power supply for the past three days in all the villages along the Doni. Those sheltered in a gruel centre behind Ibrahim Roza said: “We have started preparing food on our own by collecting groceries and kerosene from the nearby residents,” they added.
