Those living in nearby villages such as Kler, Safipur, Behla, Bagrian, Pakhoke, Bath, Deo, Mughalchak too have been complaining on the issue.“It has become a feeding ground for insects. House flies attracted by this stock add to the woes of people and pose a threat to the health of people living nearby,” said Narinder Kaur from the village.Deputy Commissioner of Tarn Taran Balwinder Singh Dhaliwal said the stock would be disposed of soon. “It was auctioned recently and the parties concerned had been told to remove the stock at the earliest.” He said the removal of the stock had already begun. However, villagers said the work was going on at a snail’s pace and it would take months to dispose it of like this.The same problem is being faced by those living in Piddi village which has about the same quantity of damaged stock. The wheat stored at the godowns of Kad Gill and Piddi villages was worth Rs 50 crore. Official sources said that an inquiry had been initiated to fix the responsibility for the damage caused to the stock.
