New Delhi: Today, P Chidambaram, the Congress leader accused PM Modi's government of "cruelly neglecting" the Food Security Act and the MGNREGA. He said that the two legislations were brought by the previous UPA government to put an end to hunger deaths like that of the three minor girls in Delhi.
MGNREGA or Mahatma Gandhi National Rural Employment Guarantee Act is an act that guarantees employment to the poor ensuring livelihood security and the National Food Security Act aims to provide subsidised food grains to the poor.
Mr Chidambaram tweeted, "MGNREGA was intended to put an end to hunger. Food Security Act was intended to put an end to starvation. Both have been cruelly neglected by the BJP government."
Mr Chidambaram, the former finance and home minister stated that as long as there were children who tragically starved to death, "we have to hang our heads in shame and grief".
On Tuesday, Three minor girls lost their life, due to starvation in east Delhi. The incident has caused a huge uproar throughout the country.
