Hypoglycaemia or low blood sugar levels among children in Bihar’s Muzaffarpur is becoming a cause for death. Many young infants and children from impoverished families and those who receive inadequate nutrition become hypoglycaemic. Around 43 children have died in the recent past due to low blood sugar levels. Previously it was being told that there had been an outbreak of brain fever which was the cause of so many deaths. Though ORS packets have been sent to be given to the children, there are lapses in the process and officers have not been active and efficient in distributing them. Union Minister for Health, Harsh Vardhan is set to visit Muzaffarpur in order to review the situation and identify lapses.

In 1989-90, with Rajiv Gandhi as PM and Farooq Abdullah as CM, 400,000 Kashmiri Pandits, Sikhs & Others FACED GENOCIDE - were slaughtered or forced to leave Kashmir overnight. "The Kashmir Files" shows only a small part of this. Should a Kashmir Genocide Law be made and the atrocities be fully investigated?

आपकी राय

1989-90 में, राजीव गांधी के प्रधान मंत्री और फारूक अब्दुल्ला के मुख्यमंत्री के रूप में, 400,000 कश्मीरी पंडितों, सिखों और अन्य लोगों को नरसंहार का सामना करना पड़ा - या तो रातों-रात कश्मीर छोड़ने के लिए मजबूर होना पड़ा । "द कश्मीर फाइल्स" इसका एक छोटा सा हिस्सा ही दिखाता है। क्या कश्मीर में हुए नरसंहार पर कानून बनाया जाना चाहिए और अत्याचारों की पूरी जांच होनी चाहिए?
