Puducherry: BJP has demanded a probe into
alleged corrupt practices of the previous Congress regime here
in procuring rice from private rice mill owners for the free
rice scheme.

President of BJP`s local unit SPK Damodar said the
Rangasamy led AINRC government has finalised rice supply
without additional incentive to rice mill owners by the
previous government, after talks with them.

He said the party suspected that the previous government had
caused a loss of Rs 2.50 crore per month to the exchequer for
paying incentive at Rs.2.50 per kg supplied to the government.

Damodhar aleged there was `behind the scenes arrangement
with mill owners` to fix the incentive and demanded a detailed
probe into the issue.
