Indore: The Union Tribal Affairs Minister
Kanti Lal Bhuria on Saturday questioned the manner in which the
Madhya Pradesh government was handling deaths of children due
Talking to reporters during a function here, the
Minister said it was distressing that these deaths were taking
place at a time when the Centre was giving enough financial
assistance and foodgrains to Madhya Pradesh for the children.
Referring to non-governmental organisations`
complaints on malnutrition deaths of children in MP, he said
the situation was more serious in the tribal-dominated
districts of Jhabua and Khandwa.
Bhuria said it was the duty and responsibility of the
State government to make sure that funds and foodgrains
reached those for whom they were meant.
