Ruckus over mid-day meal in Mirzapur; 175 teachers file resignations

Updated 05 Sep 2019 09:08 AM

In the video from the Mirzapur school, children were seen sitting on the floor and eating rotis with salt. After the video went viral on the social media, Mirzapur District Magistrate Anurag Patel had said: "I ordered an inquiry and the incident was found to be true. Prima facie, it is the fault of the teacher in charge of the school and the supervisor at the gram panchayat. Both have been suspended." The website of the Uttar Pradesh Mid Day Meal Authority -- the body overseeing the scheme in the state -- describes an elaborate menu that is supposed to be served to the children at the state-run primary schools. It includes pulses, rice, rotis and vegetables. Fruits and milk are included on certain days, according to the meal chart.
