Panaji: According to the Congress, the state government must immediately sack civil supplies minister Ravi Naik and the officials responsible for the criminal waste of over 200 tonnes of tur dal and 10 tonnes of sugar.Women would blunder the government for allowing the food items to decay and go to waste in government warehouses, according to mahila wing state president Beena Naik of the party.For this waste, Congress also requested that chief minister Pramod Sawant conduct a high-level investigation to find out why Rs 3.5 crore worth of essential food items went to waste.It's unfortunate that this vain government allowed the turdal to decay in godowns, when people were struggling to buy it.

According to Naik, people were struggling to buy essential items, and videos of the BJP minister hoarding various items surfaced.
