Itanagar: Kurung Kumey district of Arunachal Pradesh is facing a food crisis with no stock of rice in the sub-depot at Ziro of the Food Corporation of India, an official said today.
Non-availability of rice in the sub-depot since October 20 last has created a visible food crisis in Kurung Kumey district, District Food and Civil Supply Officer Nabam Tagum said.

The people of the district are solely dependent on public distribution system (PDS) rice, he said.

"If the situation persists for another five or six days, the district administration will be unable to control it and the government staff may be compelled to move out of the district," Tagum said.
