Naga Students’ Federation (NSF) has appealed to the State Vigilance Commission to expedite the ongoing investigation process into the irregularities and mismanagement of Mid Day Meal (MDM) scheme.

In a memorandum addressed to the state vigilance commissioner, the NSF president, Kesosul said the federation and its federating units while carrying out education tour 2018 visited various government schools and found that MDM scheme was not provided to the students. NSF said the scheme had miserably failed in its implementation and deprived the students of their rights and benefits. 

For the academic year 2018, NSF said most of the schools were not provided MDM and many schools were supplied with only dal (dried, split pulses) and cooking cost without supply of any other commodities compelling the school management to sell a few bags of dal in order to purchase rice and other commodities to provide meal to the students.

Impressing upon the vigilance commissioner to expedite the investigation process, the NSF demanded that report be produced within 30 days on receipt of its letter. 

Federation also demanded probe into the discrepancies of MDM scheme for the year 2017 & 2018 and strict effective disciplinary measure be initiated to penalise the defaulters of the implementing agencies.
