” I spoke to Chhatarpur collector. People responsible for this irregularity have been removed. A team has been formed to keep vigilance in all districts” said Archana Chitnis, Minister of Women and Child Development.
Reacting to this, MP Minister Gopal Bhargava stated ” People who compromise with children’s nutrition must be hit with shoes. Are officers sleeping? They want all their rights but don’t perform duties.
However, this is not the first time when schools under the Shivraj Singh Chouhan-led government, are in the limelight for ill-treatment against students.
As in last December, students from a state-run school in Bhopal were made to serve tea and snacks at a programme where state education minister Vijay Shah was also present.
Justifying the bizarre incident, Shah said students were made to serve so that they could learn “guest hospitality”.
