central armed forces and 22000 police officers remained on high alert dispersing unlawful assemblies chasing away goons stopping leaders from breaking the law checking vehicular movement and keeping proceedings on a tight leash that left the opposition purring their approval and the ruling Trinamool Congress grumbling in discontent Nowhere did the picture change so dramatically from last year than in Salt Lake During the civic body elections last October alleged Trinamool Congress goons led by party leaders created mayhem marching into polling booths threatening voters beating up several local residents including a few senior citizens and even hurling bombs when faced with resistance Journalists too weren’t spared with several suffering injuries while doing their duty One scribe was even threatened with gang-rape as cops stood as mute spectators This time however nary a sound emerged from Bidhannagar The only noise was from disgruntled TMC leaders with candidate Purnendu Basu who is contesting from Rajarhat-Gopalpur constituency complaining of "undeclared emergency" as paramilitary forces refused to let him visit polling booths with followers ABP Ananda footage showed Basu

the voting arena by storm with their theatrics An FIR was lodged against BJP leader Roopa Ganguly for allegedly threatening and pushing around a voter during a squabble in Bamangachhi area of Howrah

contesting on a TMC ticket said Roopa had broken rules by barging into several booths and trying to take pictures in her mobile Not to be deterred Roopa in turn brought allegations of rigging against the TMC and got into a scuffle with a voter TV footage caught the BJP actor-politician accosting a woman aggressively which shortly resulted in her being handed an FIR "An FIR wouldn’t have been lodged against me if the presiding officer had done his duty" spat out Roopa Another feisty BJP woman leader Locket Chatterjee against whom the EC had already filed a case for intimidating a polling

The fact that India has slipped three places in the 2017 Global Hunger Index (GHI-2017) is going to lead to much finger-pointing and hand-wringing India was ranked 97 in GHI-2016 but has now slipped to 100th rank Now it is possible to slip in rank but improve one’s scores (because some other country could progressed faster) but unfortunately India has tripped up here as well The GHI score in 2016 was 285 but is 314 in 2017 (a higher score shows poor performance) This score GHI-2017 says “is at the high-end of the serious category” Now the GHI measures hunger not as food deprivation (or lack of access to food) but in terms of nutrition So the index has four parameters: under-nourishment (insufficient calorie intake which could be a function of food deprivation) child wasting child stunting and child mortality The fourth National Family Health Survey (NFHS-4) shows that while there has been a decline over NFHS-3 in the percentage of children under five who are stunted who are underweight and who are anaemic there has been an increase in the percentage of children who are wasted and severely wasted (wasted means below the appropriate weight for age) Even in the areas where there has been improvement the levels are still high This has happened despite the public distribution system (PDS) being in place (and periodically revamped and now bolstered by the National Food Security Act) from the time of independence and a host of nutrition-related interventions and programmes having been launched over the years Can poor implementation of all these welfare schemes alone be responsible for such pathetic indicators No File photo of Indian homeless eating food at a feeding programme for the poor in Hyderabad AFP Tackling the problem of hunger in the broad definition of the GHI requires an acceptance that there is a problem with the design of the PDS itself In this paper The Bumpy Road From Food to Nutrition Security Prabhu Pingali Bhaskar Mittra Andaleeb Rahman highlight the skew in India’s food policy towards staple food crops like rice and weight and against traditional micronutrient-rich locally sourced food crops like coarse grains and pulses “Where it has been successful the PDS has helped ensure that the problem of hunger is limited but its nutritional impacts are unclear” They make a similar point about the flagship programmes focussed on maternal and child nutrition – the Integrated Child Development Scheme (ICDS) and the Mid-Day Meal scheme – which too they say are biased towards staples A 2013 study by Neeraj Kaushal of Columbia University on how consumer price subsidies affect nutrition also pointed to the weak link between the PDS and nutrition outcomes The study covering six states where the PDS functioned effectively found that though the food subsidy put more money in people’s hands it had no effect on nutrition measured by per capita calorie intake per capita protein intake and per capita fat intake It increased the consumption of cereals and sugar but reduced the consumption of cheaper and unsubsidised coarse grains which are also the source of other essential nutrients The Pingali-Mittra-Rahman paper notes that some states have started providing pulses and coarse grains through the PDS – Karnataka and Tamil Nadu provide millets while Chhattisgarh provides iodised salt black gram and pulses They suggest that the feasibility of doing this nation-wide needs to be explored seriously But providing nutrient-rich food alone is not enough Nutrition outcomes are certainly influenced primarily by food intake but equally by whether those nutrients are absorbed by the body According to the World Health Organisation 50 percent of malnutrition is the result of repeated diarrhoea or intestinal worms This clearly has to do with problems like open defecation lack of access to safe drinking water and sanitation The prevalence of diarrhoea among children below the age of five increased from 9 percent to 92 percent between NFHS-3 and NFHS-4 The National Nutrition Strategy paper drawn up by the NITI Aayog points out that a 10 percent increase in open defecation leads to a 07 percent increase in both stunting and severe stunting This underlines the crucial need to make the Swachh Bharat Abhiyan a success The paper also flags the lack of access to health and child care services as determining under-nutrition The poor show on the GHI ranking is almost certain to lead to the usual lamentations about the poor implementation of the NFSA how the use of Aadhaar for welfare benefits is denying the poor access to subsidised food and the cutback in welfare spending by the central government (several welfare schemes have been transferred to the state governments following the implementation of the Fourteenth Finance Commission award) The solution put forth will also be the same – give more money for welfare programmes covering food and nutrition But clearly the war on malnutrition and hunger has to be fought on multiple fronts – the privileging of wheat and rice in the PDS better governance of nutrition-focussed schemes for children and mothers as well as improving access to safe drinking water and sanitation and access to health services for the poor Will the GHI-2017 prod everyone involved in this to think on these lines I’m the same with sex. ?
