Partha Pratim Roy asks a Question about advertisement of junk food

FULL TRANSCRIPT

Thank you Madam, for allowing me to speak. You know nowadays more and more children are spending time on online apps, social media rather than watching TV.

Recently, the World Health Organisation warned that government should be protecting children from targeted junk food advertisement on social media apps, video blogs, as well as on TV.

My question to the Hon’ble Minister, through you, is what are the government initiatives to resist the advertisement of junk food in online apps, social media, video blogs and as well as TV.
