Hours after The Indian Express published a report highlighting the plight of children from a Mahadalit village in Bhagalpur in the absence of mid-day meals due to the shutdown of schools, the Bihar government issued a state-wide order to distribute ration to school children for three months and transfer money to their bank accounts, or to that of their guardians, in lieu of the food scheme.
Friends, this is a shining example of good reporting. A true report which brought out the weakness of the government and forced it to take action for the betterment of the common man. I have shared this report here because good journalism and good reporting is almost dead in India. False praise for the government is neither good journalism nor good reporting.Link: https://indianexpress.com/article/india/hours-after-express-report-bihar-orders-food-cash-to-make-up-for-school-meals-6493331/
