Indian Government to Target Food Adulteration Issues

The Indian government on March 12 expressed serious concern over food adulteration and pledged to take corrective measures to ensure food safety.

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."
