Rajasthan: Food grain worth Rs 2 crore left to rot

Kota: There has been yet another shocking case of damage to food grains due to rains in Rajasthan's Kota district. Food grains to the tune of Rs 2 crore were neglected by Food Corporation of India (FCI) officials.

Famers have now logded a case against Food Corporation of India (FCI) officials, alleging that they did not make adequate arrangement, despite assurances by food minister KV Thomas to CNN-IBN.

This comes despite a warning by Food Minister KV Thomas, who had reacted to a CNN-IBN report in Punjab and Haryana. He had then assured that enough storage space would be provided to all the states.

CNN-IBN has been reporting on repeated incidents of rotting foodgrains due to the government's negligence, particularly in Rajasthan and Punjab in the past two years.
