Naresh Agarwal, Samajwadi Party national general secretary, raised the issue of food adulteration in Rajya Sabha during Zero Hour. Agarwal said, "India should follow other countries like Singapore and ensure stricter punishment to the offenders. The government must bring in stringent rules and existing laws must be reviewed, if required."

In response to the issue raised in the parliament, Indian Health Minister J.P. Nadda, said in Rajya Sabha, "The government understands this is really very serious issue. The government is determined to take steps to better equip the laboratories and train the food inspectors. Some changes are required to be made in the rules."
