Right to food: MPJ orgaised a statewide awareness campaign on right to food

The food security is an important issue for the people of India. The central government came up with a legal enactment to provide food security for the citizens. This was a long awaited constitutional measure to check the problems of malnutrition and deaths due to hunger in the country. Everybody is aware that, a larger chunk of our population is poverty stricken and living under extremely distressed condition. Hence, the National food security Act, 2013 was a welcome move of the government. However, this provision does not fully address the food needs of the people, as there are several discrepancies in it, which needs to be rectified. But, the implementation of this act was a biggest problem before the civil society, as the public was not aware about the benefits available under this act. The people did not know their rights and responsibilities of government officials.

The Movement for Peace and Justice launched a statewide public awareness campaign and successfully delivered the information in every nook and corner of the state.
