42 adivasi and dalit families were denied ration for 2 years. Rajkumar from Birpur Panchayat started a petition on Change.org through CG net swara, asking the Collector of Satna to resume operations of the ration shop and take action against the kotedar for embezzling their food supplies. More than 8500 people supported the petition. Within 9 days, the kotedar approached each family to give them 100 kgs of wheat and 28 kgs of rice each. He also announced that they will be given their monthly ration hence forth.

I am from Birpur gram panchayat of Majhgawan block of Satna district of Madhya Pradesh. http://www.cgnetswara.org/index.php?id=14339

3 villages of Birpur panchayat comprising mostly of Dalit and tribal families were provided with PDS ration cards only in 2007.  We rely heavily on the government public distribution system (PDS) for our food supplies. But for the last two years, the distribution shop has remained closed and we have not received our monthly subsidised ration.

Kunaku, the Kotedar of the village, has denied us our share and has instead been supplying the provisions in the black market. He has also ridiculed us and told us to approach the collector, assuming that we ‘villagers’ will never be able to.

After a dharna at the block office for 6 days, we are petitioning the District Magistrate of Satna, K. K. Khare, to set an example and

1. Provide us our complete share of monthly ration immediately
2. Take action on Kotedar Kunaku for embezzling the provisions meant for poor tribal and dalit families.

Help us restore the PDS in our village. Call District Magistrate of Satna, K. K. Khare at 9479479781 or 07672- 222911 and ask him to take action.
