Ration dealers plan to stage dharna

Kochi: The All-Kerala Retail Ration Dealers’ Association will stage dharnas in front of Union Government offices on Monday in protest against the food policy of the Centre.

At a press conference here on Saturday, the association’s general secretary, R. Radhakrishnan, said the Centre should ensure uninterrupted supply of food to the State and not close down Food Corporation of India depots. The association demanded restoration of the reduced supply of kerosene and foodgrains.

He said the ration shops would not be closed on the protest day. The State Government owed crores of rupees to ration dealers.
