Tur dal stock inspection begins after adulteration complaints
The state government on Sunday began inspection of the tur dal stock stored at a marketing yard in Visavadar in Junagadh district following complaints of adulteration.
The development comes three days after seven persons were booked after tur dal stocked in a warehouse in Keshod town of Junagadh was found to be adulterated.
The Congress MLA from Visavadar had alleged on Saturday that tur dal procured by the Gujarat State Civil Supplies Corporation on behalf of the National Agricultural Cooperative Marketing Federation of India (NAFED) was adulterated. He had also conducted a janta raid at a yard, and later held a protest at the district collectorate demanding action.
