Midday Meal Tragedy- a Wake-up Call

Readers Pulse

When the actualization of the much coveted food security bill is getting momentum, the incidents like the 16 July Bihar Midday Meal Tragedy evokes doubt and fear among the downtrodden. The death toll touched 22 on 17 July. According to the prima facie report, the children fell sick after consuming vegetables. High-level of organic phosphorus content in midday meal is suspected to have caused the most horrendous incident. It later came to the fore that an insecticide container was used to cook vegetables. It was also discovered that in the residential store of the headmistress police found stocks of food and vegetables lying together with pesticides. The incidents like this show the failure of the state government and concerned authorities. That stern action is taken against the culprits and the relatives of the victims are compensated adequately is the least one can demand.
