Convention On Right To Food, August 26
IN view of relentless high prices of essential commodities, there is an urgent requirement for a Right to Food legislation. However the government proposal, if accepted in its present form will lead to food insecurity and not food security. The CPI(M) is organising a Right to Food convention as part of its struggle to ensure a pro-people legislation and change in related government policies.
Several organisations and reputed economists would be participating. The inaugural session would be attended by Manik Sarkar (chief minister, Tripura) Jayati Ghosh and Madhura Swaminathan.
