Udupi: e-tenders will be called for egg supply to schools - Minister Halappa

Daijiworld media Network – (HB)

Udupi, Jan, 28: In order to maintain transparency in the egg supply to schools, e-tenders will be called in every taluk so that a farmer can get a fair price for his efforts and middlemen are cut down, said state women and child welfare Minister Halappa Basappa Achar.

Speaking to media persons after a review meeting on Friday, January, 28 here at the Zilla panchayat, Manipal, he added that the NECC Board will take up all the necessary measures to prevent irregularities in the scheme.

“Around 134 stone mines are functioning in the district on contract basis and also 40 crusher units. Around 160 permits have been given for the extraction of sand under CRZ. The KCZMA has approved the extraction of 1230438.05 metric tons of sand from 23 sand blocks from the river, which come under CRZ limits. Already 211718.64 metric tons of sand has been extracted. There are two contracts under Non-CRZ to auction the sand. The SEIAA has approved extraction of 78039 metric tons under Non-CRZ blocks out of which 35075 metric tons of sand has already been cleared from the given blocks," divulged Halappa.

The department has collected Rs 2880 lacs royalty till January, 25, 2022, he disclosed, adding that the government had issued a notification to remove sand beds, which are hurdles for traditional fishing.

"There are 965 undernourished children reported in the district, of whom 725 are malnourished and 65 most malnourished. The department concerned is taking all the necessary measures, distributing quality food to them," said Halappa

"There are no dropout children in the 11-14 years age group. According to a report, there are 24 old age homes in Udupi. The government has decided to increase the grants to age old homes from Rs 2 lacs to Rs 15 lacs", he said.

He was responding to a query on Congress' comment that development and achievements were zero under BJP governance. Halappa continued, “Congress has no other work to do. We managed Covid crisis with maximum effort. We do not need their certificate. Many industries have shut down due to financial breakdowns but the government is trying its best to generate employment."

K Raghupathi Bhat, MLA , Kurma Rao, Deputy Commissioner, Dr. Naveen Bhat Y, CEO, Udupi zilla panchayat, Sukumar Shetty, MLA, Byndoor and others were present.

    Agreed. Vegetarian food is healthy. Many infestations can be avoided. Lesser chance of cardiac disease, lesser methane emmisions so good for the environment. There are many protein rich vegetarian foods,so eggs can be avoided. All vegetarian food is Halal. Why discriminate and segregate veg and non veg students in school, let them eat whatever they want at home.

    Most producers like flocks to begin laying at around 20 weeks of age. A flock of hens will lay efficiently for 60-65 weeks. White egg birds will lay 260-285 eggs a year and eat 3 pounds of feed for every dozen eggs they produce. The steroids can lead to suppression of immunity and pileup extra kilos." A study conducted by the Centre for Science and Environment (CSE) on broiler chicken about three years ago found that 40 per cent of the samples were contaminated with antibiotic residue.

    Present day eggs are of more steroids and antibiotics. Hence I prefer fish than eggs. If one comes to know how the eggs are produced nowadays......they will not eat like me.

    Nothing is safe these day.... formalin is used in preserving fish and i heard zinc n some other chemical is mixed in the ice that is use to store fish for longer duration. Unless u catch ur own fish.
