Vasco Students Fed Expired Biscuits

Even as the anger over the contaminated food supplied by a Self Help Group to students under the mid-day meal scheme is to subside, yet another incident of a SHG supplying expired biscuit to students came to light in Vasco on Saturday.
Biscuit packets and that too expired, were supplied to students of Vidya Mandir High School, Chicalim, even though junk food or packaged food products are not to be served as mid-day meals to students.

The incident came to light when a student showed the biscuit packet to her parent where it was stamped that it was packed in December 2010 and had to be consumed within six months of packaging.
Incidentally, the culprit Siddhi Mahila Mandal that supplied the packets, is headed by Rohini Parab a State Executive Committee member of the Bharatiya Janata Party and former vice chairperson of Mormugao Municipal Council.
