The secretary of the market committee turned off his cell phone
There was uproar among mill operators and market traders in the area after the marketing authority imposed a fine worth thousands of rupees as part of the crackdown in the area. When Market Committee Secretary Narendra Kundu was called to seek information about it, he asked for information about the raid after 10 minutes but even after calling several times, he did not pick up the phone and switched off the mobile phone. Thereafter, when we sought information from Fatehabad DMEO Rahul Kundu about the matter, he refused to get any information about the action. Due to the aloofness and silence of the market committee administrators on the matter, the farmers’ unions have called a meeting on the matter on Monday to discuss the stand of the administrators. In this regard, SDM Jagdish Chandra said that the Marketing Board team is conducting raids. At this time you have not yet received the action report.
