The Fact News Service,
Bathinda, May 17,
Due to the Corona epidemic, all government and private schools in the state are closed. Due to this, all children are being taught online. On the other hand, the mid-day meal given by the government to the children of government schools is also not being given to the children from the department. Whereas during the Corona epidemic last year, the government ordered the Department of Education to deliver the mid-day meal for children to their homes, so that they could eat, but nothing is happening in the second wave. The mid-day meal received by the children is not being given even after one and a half months have passed.  Last year, the education department imposed the duty of teachers to distribute mid-day meals to the children. This time nothing like this is happening. However, the mid-day meal has been reached by the Department of Education. While the cooking cost has also come as a cooking cast. Children for three months ie April, Education department was planning to distribute raw ration and cooking cast of mid-day meal in the month of May and June. But the month of April has passed. At the same time, half a month has passed, but the government has not issued guidelines to the workers. At the same time, the teachers also say that the guidelines were issued to us last year, but this time nothing like this was issued. In district Bathinda, the ratio is given in prescribed proportion to 90 thousand 332 children of primary and upper primary 686 schools up to class VIII. The primary has 54652 children while the upper primary has 35860 children. For primary school children, 1130 quintal wheat and 1130 quintal rice have been supplied whereas the same amount of raw ration has been supplied for upper primary school children.  In district Bathinda, the ratio is given in prescribed proportion to 90 thousand 332 children of primary and upper primary 686 schools up to class VIII.
