Raipur: Chhattisgarh chief minister Bhupesh Baghel announced on Wednesday that tribals living in the forest regions of Bastar would soon get free nutritious food through gram panchayats and access to medical facilities. The announcement comes with respect to the deaths of over 100 children in Bihar’s Muzaffarpur district due to acute encephalitis syndrome (AES). The state government will provide nutritious food to the forest dwellers to combat malnutrition and, as part of another scheme, tribals will have mobile healthcare facilities in weekly markets. These schemes will soon be launched from Bastar region as a “pilot project”. Bastar is considered to be worst Naxal-affected region in Chhattisgarh and also the region has the highest malnutrition level across the state.
