Complaints against mid-day meal served by the NGOs; teachers, students share disappointment, anger
It was already chaos with thousands and thousands of mid-day meal workers protesting against the government’s decision to hand over the responsibilities to private NGOs. Today, the matter became a law and order issue in Silchar.
Mid-day meals in government schools is a government initiative that has been going on since a very long time. While earlier the meals were cooked by mid-day meal workers in the school itself, starting November 1, 2019, the private NGOs took the responsibility.
