In a bid to further enhance the Public Distribution System (PDS), Tripura Chief Minister Manik Sahah on Tuesday launched the distribution of packaged spices at subsidised price through the Fair Price Shops (FPS).

Addressing the gathering on the occasion, Chief Minister Saha said, “Our government is committed to ensuring various essential items up to the last man of the society through PDS at a subsidised price. The new initiative will largely benefit the people.”

He said, “After speaking to different dealers we could ascertain their issues or problems. Our departmental minister has taken note of all this. Our government is a government which works to resolve the complications. This is not the kind of a government which seeks to keep problems alive. This is a pro-people’s government which works for the welfare of the people.”
“People have seen it in the last 5 years also our government is determined to resolve all problems by considering it as a challenge. And we are working on that basis,” Chief Minister Saha added.

Our honourable minister (Sushanta Choudhury) soon after taking charge of the department (Food, Civil Supplies and Consumer Affairs) gave it a new momentum.”
The Tripura Chief Minister said that ration cards will be made into Smart Cards.
