New Delhi, Apr 9 (PTI) Delhi’s Health Minister Satyendar Jain today ordered his department to inspect milk products on a daily basis and submit reports after MLAs raised the issue of adulteration in the Delhi Assembly.
AAP MLA Rajesh Rishi from Jankapuri claimed that synthetic milk is being supplied in the city, which is allegedly “damaging kidneys and liver” of people. Other AAP MLAs also raised the issue, seeking strict action against those involved in food adulteration.
“I am issuing an order today to my department to conduct inspections of milk products on daily basis and submit reports to my office,” Jain told the House.
Speaker Ram Niwas Goel also formed a seven-member committee to suggest the amendments in the existing laws to ensure stern action against the culprits.
MLAs Mandan Lal, Manjinder Singh Sirsa, Nitin Tyagi, Alka Lamba, Anil Vaipayee, Adarsh Shastri and SK Bagga have been appointed as members of the committee.
Goel said that the government will incorporate suggestions to be made by the committee, which will work in coordination with the House panel on health.
The health minister said that the government will table a draft bill in the House and send the same for the Centre for its nod.
