Congress President Mallikarjun Kharge took on the central government over India’s ranking at 111th in the Global Hunger Index.
Taking aim, he said that the government may be ‘allergic’ to the global data; Yes, but according to Indian statistics people are still going hungry.
Congress President posted on India’s rank in the Global Hunger Index was 107th out of 121 countries in 2022, which has reached 111th among 125 countries in 2023.
Raising the question, he said, is it not true that in the last five years 35.5 percent of children of young age are comparatively short in height? This clearly means that their height has not increased with increasing age. Is it not true that 19.3 percent of children in India are weak?
Mallikarjun Kharge said, “Modi government can also claim that food grains are being distributed to 80 crore Indians, but according to experts, this number is also less than 14 crore. That India is ranked 111th out of 125 countries in the Global Hunger Index 2023, which the government has completely rejected as wrong and malicious.
