CM to launch supplemental nutrition program
Surat, 13 July 2012
Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi will launch a scheme to provide nutritious supplement to kindergarten children. The event has been organized at Kamrej college campus.
According to Ashwin Patel, President of Surat district panchayat, about 40,147 poor and tribal kids will be given 100 ml milk twice every week for one year period at Anganwadi centres.
The project involves estimated cost of Rs 1,77,03,221. The Surat District Panchayat will contribute Rs 1 crore from its own fund for this cause, while other amount will be contributed by public.
Meanwhile Surat Jilla Hitrakshak Samiti has announced that it would submit a memorandum demanding separate Sardar district consisting Bardoli, Mahuva, Mandvi, Mangrol, Umarpada, Kamrej and Palsana talukas with Bardoli as headquarter before the Chief Minister during later’s Kamrej visit. Present headquarter of Surat district is far away from these seven talukas, and therefore they should be separated from Surat district with Bardoli as new headquarter, Hitrakshan Samiti said.
