Bhopal: In a startling revelation it has come to light that the Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan has blocked eggs in anganwadi meals just because he is a strict vegetarian.
In the tribal areas of Alirajpur, Mandla and Hoshangabad districts, where children suffer from malnutrition, eggs would have been a rich source of protein in their diet.
However, when the Chief Minister’s permission was sought for including eggs in the anganwadi meals, he immediately turned down the proposal, according to an Indian Express report.
Chouhan also made it clear that eggs would not be served in the anganwadis as long as he is the Chief Minister of the state.
Clarifying the same, Principal Secretary to the Chief Minister, S K Mishra said that it’s a sentimental issue with Chouhan.
