This rotten grain was to be used for mid-day meal in a school in Vadli village.
However, the local leaders came running as soon as they learned that the grain was rotten. The Taluka Panchayat member also reached the school and found that the grains were rotten and had worms. It has been instructed not to give this cereal to children. It has also been appealed not to give food grains that compromise the health of children.
