Locals from Lawaypora Srinagar, however, said that the concerned Tehsildar handed over these kits to concerned Patwari who ironically handed them over to a former MLA and a political leader.

Locals added that this political leader who recently joined a new political party asked his aides to distribute these kits. “These ‘chamchas’ distributed these kits among those who voted for the political leader in last Assembly elections. In other words, only voters were given these kits. These voters include those who are very rich and some are even landlords,” the locals said and demanded a probe into the distribution of these kits.
