Congress MLA had ordered 2000 kgs of namkeen before 2017 Gujarat assembly elections, didn’t pay the shopkeeper after party lost

In a letter shared by journalist Janak Dave, a shopkeeper has accused Gujarat Congress MLA of not paying the dues for snacks purchased ahead of state assembly elections in 2017.

A shopkeeper in Gujarat has accused Gujarat Congress MLA Poonambhai Parmar of not paying dues amounting to Rs 4,75,000 for the snacks he purchased ahead of 2017 state assembly elections. Journalist Janak Dave took to Twitter last evening to share a letter supposedly written by a shopkeeper from Anand to the MLA requesting him to clear his dues.

In the letter, the shopkeeper requests the MLA to clear dues of 2,000 kgs chavana (a savoury Gujarati snack) purchased at Rs 65/kg ahead of 2017 Vidhan Sabha elections in the state. He alleges that the MLA owes him a total of Rs 4,75,020 as per bill no. 507 dated 29th November, 2017. The shopkeeper says that when he had earlier requested clearance of dues, Parmar had given him a cheque of the same amount on 20th December 2017 with a request to not deposit the same in the bank. As per the letter, the shopkeeper says that Parmar had said he would make the payment in cash later.

“After the elections were over, I time and again requested you to clear the dues. In April 2019, you finally paid me Rs 2 lakh and had assured me you will pay the remaining amount in next 2-3 months. We informed you many times that our financial position is currently weak. We are unable to even pay school fees of our children,” the shopkeeper Amitbhai Rana said. The shopkeeper further said that if dues are not cleared, he, along with his family, will sit on a fast outside the Congress MLA’s house.
