Leader of the Opposition in the Legislative Assembly Jagadish Shettar on Monday sought an enquiry into reports that Indira canteens were serving food below the stipulated quantity specified by the government.

Participating in a discussion in the Assembly, Shettar said that while the quantity stipulated per plate of lunch was 300 grams of rice, 150 grams of sambar and 50 grams of chutney, what was served was much less leaving consumers dissatisfied.

"Media reports have exposed that those who have bagged contracts to prepare food at Indira canteen are cheating consumers by serving them less than the stipulated quantity. The government should immediately order a probe into the matter," he said.
