After NDTV Expose, Children In Jharkhand Village Start Getting Mid-Day Meals
The remote hills of Chuha Pahar village in Jharkhand saw a minister's visit for the first time ever. Following an NDTV expose, Jharkhand minister Saryu Roy decided to visit the village after it was reported that mid-day meals don't reach Paharia adivasi children due to absence of teachers and rampant corruption in the area. This forces them to fall back on traditional practices and hunt and eat rodents, squirrels, rabbits and boars. These hunts are not only dangerous dangerous, but the animals carry infections.
