Yamunanagar, 08 April (H.C.). According to the letter issued by the Director of Elementary Education, Haryana, orders were issued to provide cooked nutritious food to the children of all the schools. A copy of this letter has also been sent to all the Deputy Commissioners and District Elementary Education Officers.

Refuting these orders, Sharbati Devi, state general secretary of Mid Day Meal Workers Union, CITU and Sarva Karamcharis Union Haryana, said on Friday that these orders for preparing lunch for the children of schools must have been issued by the Director of Elementary Education. But the reality is far from this. In the orders, the date of when the food will be started has not been told.


He told how the food of the children would be prepared without the supply of ration. He said that neither the cooking cost of the children has been added to the account of the school. In such a situation, whether the head of the mid-day meal group or the head of the school will make lunch for the children by spending the amount from his own pocket, it also remains a doubt. Wherein, until a date or budget is not put by the department, mid-day meal cannot be started in schools. Therefore, we want to alert the government through the union that the ration supply and cooking cost should be sent to the schools at the earliest so that the mid-day meal can be run smoothly.
