Noon Meal: Scrap MoU with Akshaya Foundation : CPI (M) to govt


Puducherry : The Puducherry unit of the Communist Party of India (Marxist) on Saturday urged the government to scrap the Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) signed with the 'Akshaya Patra Foundation" to provide noon meal to school children in the Union Territory. In a statement here, CPI-M secretary Rajangam charged that while the Congress government here preaches one thing it is practicing another and is giving much hardship to the people by enhancing power tariff, house tax and water tax .

Now the noon-meal scheme was handed over to "Akshaya Patra" foundation which functioning under a religious organization 'Iscan'. Stating that this is a suicidal act of the government claiming to be secular, Mr.Rajangam said and wondered why the noon meal scheme was suddenly handed over to the voluntary organization and whether the government has consulted with any one before signing the MoU
