She further said that multinational companies have removed our traditional crops from the market to sell their own cereals.
The government is also not paying attention to the issue and if the situation doesn’t improve our traditional food items would be extinct.
By consuming the food items of the foreign companies our health has also deteriorated. Also present at the event were Dr. Anil Rai, CP Singh, Murlidhar Burnwal, Vijay Singh, Surendra Singh, JKM Raju, Amit Mishra, KP Choudhary, Rameshwar Prasad, Surendra Singh, Ravi Shankar and others.
