Kejriwal launches Campaign against Adulterated Food in Delhi

News

New Delhi, April 07: Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal on Tuesday launched "Mission Indradhanush Kavach" at Majnu-ka-Tilla of North Delhi under which children would be vaccinated free of cost. He said government will not spare any person found involved in adulteration.

The Mission Indradhanush, formulated by the union health and family welfare ministry, intended to expand immunisation coverage in India to at least 90 percent children in the next five years.

"80 percent of the children have been given vaccination. But if we look at the children of slums then vaccination to only 40 percent has been given. Seven vaccinations cost Rs 2000 so it is a problem for the poor", said Kejriwal.

"We will try to catch hold of adulteration. Many people get affected due to adulteration. Fake medicines also need to be stopped. God won't be able to save the accused. Strict probe will be done against them", he said.
