'Sub-standard food supplied to Anganwadi'

Addressing a press conference here on Wednesday, the duo said that though many children have fallen ill due to the consumption of the low quality food, the officials concerned have turned a nelson’s eye to the whole issue.

Showing the samples of the packaged food, they alleged that the food items which have past  expired date were being supplied. They alleged that officials in collusion with food manufacturing companies were supplying the poor quality food and urged the senior officers to take action against them.
