Palwal: The sarpanch of Lohagarh here has said that students from his village would no longer take part in the mid-day meal scheme at the government secondary school after a lizard was found in the food cooked there.
Taking serious note of Monday`s episode at the school, sarpanch Charan Singh took the decision following which no mid-day meal was served at the school on Tuesday.
The scheme, however, continued as normal in other schools in the area.
Meanwhile, the state education department has written to Iskcon Food Relief Foundation seeking a reply within two days over the unsavoury discovery on Monday in the food at the school, a government official said.
The above foundation was responsible for serving food at the school as part of the mid-day meal scheme.
