Jaleswar (Ajit Kumar Sahu): Residents of Basta area protest against the new liquor shop. According to sources, a new foreign liquor shop is set to be opened near Kudia on the Basta, Gandhi Chowk-Baliapal road. However, there was a long-running liquor shop was there. The villagers in Kudia, Jamalpur and Baharda villages had repeatedly opposed it. The government liquor store was closed for some time.
The people, however, were happy to hear that the shop was stopped. But on another plot adjacent to the old shop, another man is going to open a new shop. Opposing it people informed the local tehsildar, excise officer, excise superintendent, district magistrate, departmental minister that another person is going to open a liquor shop. The person who has just acquired the government tender, Ranjit Kar is from Baleshwar area. While there is no house of his own in the place named after him, he hastily digs another man’s agriculture land, cut down the crop, and bury the ground there.
Not only this, he has blocked the drain and built roads. However, the question arises as to how this is possible, when it is not allowed to open a liquor shop on any farmland. Although he was allowed the liquor shop to be opened from May 1, the interesting fact is that he has stated in the contract about two brick asbestos houses with electrical connection, and the annual rent of one lakh and ten thousand rupees. All these are actually not true.
All the information provided is false and baseless. Who gave him all the counterfeit documents and awarded him the no objection certificate ? High-ranking officials or influential people at the administrative level are behind the scams and tender. While many of these issues have been raised in general, questions have been raised about the law and order situation in the district and the integrity of senior officials. Locals, however, have warned that protests will be staged if high-level investigations are not carried out immediately.
