Darbhanga: Rotten wheat is being supplied for the Public Distribution System. The Bihar government has rejected and returned 150 metric tonnes of wheat to the Food Corporation of India.
State Food Minister Shyam Rajak said that the grain delivered was unfit for consumption.
The minister also alleged that the Centre had held back more than half of the wheat that Bihar had asked for.
"The wheat sent was rotten. We cannot distribute this," Rajak said.
