Biplab Deb said, even after distribution sugar, there will be much savings from the saved amount and soon Govt will start distribution of cooking oil and few more commodities. Biplab Deb asked, why the previous Govt was looting Rs. 63 crores per financial year, they must answer it. “The previous Chief Minister created an image of himself who looks like a clean, honest person, but if you were honest and clean then how these fake ration cards invented under your Food Dept ?”
