    🌾🌼🌿 Why Food is important? Because our Nation has the biggest " free meals scheme" in the world. As per United Nations Health Services, India's malnutrition has been arrested and addressed because of this programme. The meals can be given in schools. At meal time, children will attend school for one hour. Observe social distancing, eat their meals and go. In villages this "mid day school meal program", was important. It was so, because children of poor parents who could not feed them, were given food. How can such a program be stopped? The program was initiated with blessings of Great Leaders. India will lie down in shame if such programs are done away with.🌾🌼🌿 Mera Bharat Mahan.Jai

    Nitin Thorat In India, Why is Government taking away owner income. Many poor are depending on income from Bank and Post Fixed Deposits. In year 2020, Bank and Post Fd rate of interest was 7percent. Today is brought down to 5percen On the opposite side, rate of food is shot up. No one is wanting to discuss. Thali rate in year 2021 is 100 rs. In 2017 , it was 35 rs. Why are you not facing this question? It is your right to discuss this publicly. This is on the verge of National Calamity. Onions : from Rs 20 in year 2019, it shot up to 130 rs. Now it is 60 rs in Porvorim area. We don't understand. This is being played, while the poor and needy Goans are kicked. In such a National Calamity, why Government Employees income is not reduced? You should apply NREGS ( national rural employment guarantee scheme) rate to Govt employees. Shreya Raykar What is "food🌿🙋‍♂️🌾"? India is great. Why is our Govt devaluing Indian rupees internally? Rice plate 2017 was rs 30/-. Rice plate 2020 is rs 100/-. This is in Goa. We are from India . In talks, we are local. Each state should fix value of rupee internally. 'Rupee is food'. It should be dharm of each chief minister to fix rupee value vis a vis rice plate / thali. Let's go ahead and fix. I suggest 50 rs in Cities and 30 rs in Towns and 15 rupees in villages. Jai. Mera Bharat Mahan 🙋‍♂️🌾🌼🌿 We say "Annah heh Parabrahma" . That is why, this🌾🙋‍♂️🌿. 🖕🖕🙊🖕 🙏🙏🙏🌾Shubh 🌼
