New Delhi : People by lakhs  grapple hunger even as tonnes of foodgrains lie stagnant across central government warehouses in the country, said CPI(M) General Secretary Sitaram Yechury.

Back in 2014 when Narendra Modi became the Prime Minister, India ranked 55th on the Global Hunger Index. In 2020, that witnessed a steep fall  with India settling at  94th position. According to statistics let on yesterday, India has now  slipped seven more points tanking to 101  among 116 nations in the Global Hunger Index. The government should become willing to distribute free foodgrains to the starving communities, said Yechury.
