Abir Ranjan Biswas asks a Question on Anganwadis in the country
The answer provided by the hon’ble minister, Section 5 Sub-section 1 of National Food Security Act, 2013, provides for every Anganwadi centre to have facilities for drinking water and sanitation.
Sir, in the same answer we have seen that out of the 13,77,595 operational Anganwadi centres all over the Country we only 10,14,655 centres have toilet facilities and only 12,18,027 centres have drinking water facilities. So there is a yawning gap.
I would like to know from the minister, does the government have any target date of achieving these facilities for all the centres, all over the Country? Thank you.
