Students of a primary school in Barauli village in Gorakhpur have protested against the poor quality of food served to them.


Students of Primary School, Barauli village, under Chargawan block here protested against the poor quality of food on Saturday, district coordinator for mid-day meal Deepak Patel said.

Authorities reached the spot and found several irregularities in serving the mid-day meal, he said.

Potatoes and other ingredients had come from the house of gram pradhan (village head) and were of sub-standard quality, he said.

It was also found that the food being cooked was insufficient for the 158 students of the school, Patel said.

The food safety department has taken a sample of the served food and action would be taken against the guilty, said the district coordinator.
