Malnutrition can not be checked in Odisha under Nabin regime-Why ?

State Govt.’s naked failure   to develop Infrastructure of   AWCs led to collapse of ICDS programme in Odisha

·      Only 44% of Anganwadi Centres   having their own building.
·      While  Kendrapara district is having 80% of  AWCs with no  building infrastructure,  Koraput district, infamous  for  malnourished  tribal  children  has only 50%  AWCs of its own  building.
·      Many of building of Anganwadi centres are functioning in dilapidated condition.
·      Lakhs of the children are taking cooked food under open sky or someone’s verandah.
·      Lack of infrastructural facilities  has led  to collapse of ICDS programme in tribal pockets of Odisha.
·      Due to corruption ad irregularities   in distribution of Chhatua, egg and cooked food,   ICDS   has completely failed to increase nutritional standard of the children in the state.
·      Failure of ICDS programme has led to increase of malnourished   children in the state.

Dear friends

Odisha is very infamous for its notoriety of highest child death in India despite State Govt.’s tall claim of successfully carrying out ICDS project in Odisha.  In fact, ICDS (Integrated Child Development Scheme)  is  universal  scheme  being  undertaken  by State Govt. with  financials  support  from Central  Government  to  provide  nutritious  food  to the  children, lactating and pregnant  women  besides    undertaking  immunisation programme, referral service  and pre-school education.  The whole ICDS programme revolves around Anganwadi Centre which   caters all services meant for beneficiaries   free of cost.  This programme is implemented in Odisha more than 30 years in Odisha. While  hearing  Writ Petition  case No. 196/2001, the hon’ble Supreme Court  had  issued  direction  in 2001 and 2002  to  both State and Central  Govt. to universalise ICDS programme and   ensure necessary budgetary allocation for   providing infrastructure facilities i.e., own building  to  all  Anganwadi Centres.  Though 15 years passed since order of Apex Court,  the State Govt. has failed  to  provide  own building less than 50% of the AWCs  in Odisha.
