Bengaluru: A section of organisations have now opposed the State Government move of distributing eggs along with bananas.

Among others, few Lingayat organisations have held a protest in Bidar demanding scraping of the scheme saying it will affect the brain of the students. They also held demonstration demanding immediate roll back of the scheme.

Meanwhile, the protest also brought sharp criticism from the experts and the progressive thinkers saying that these organisations lack concern for wellbeing of the kids. Most of the people in this region are non-vegetarians and they have demanded the government to continue with the scheme.

It can be recalled here that the State Government had decided to start supplying egg for children studying between classes I and VIII in the schools of Hyderabad – Karnataka region along with bananas, recently. A decision in this regard was taken after the reports suggested that a majority of students are suffering from malnutrition. As per the plan, the Government decided to supply 12 eggs per month for the children studying in the government and government aided schools, while vegetarian students would be distributed bananas in the place of eggs.
