Even though the Government has issued strict orders to the teachers not to stop distribution of Mid Day Meals (MDM) in drought-hit areas during the summer vacation, yet, according to reports, the MDM is not being given to school students for the last three months in the Upper Primary School at Thelko Chappar village under Patnagrah block.
The teacher is not coming to the school regularly for the last three months. The cooks and helpers engaged there have also not received their wages for the last four months. The MDM distribution has been stopped in toto in the school, said Promod Bagarti, a social activist.
“This is a clear violation of the Government guidelines. Let the administration take necessary measures to resume the MDM to students,” Bagarti demanded.
