Food Minister Sadhan Chandra Majumder has directed the officials concerned, in Naogaon, to ensure food security by all necessary means.

The newly-appointed minister issued the directive during a meeting with local government officials, at the deputy commissioner’s meeting room in Naogaon, on Wednesday.

Addressing the event, Majumder said: “Along with raising awareness against adulterated food, mobile court raids must be launched regularly. Food security keeps the society secure, so we will employ a zero-tolerance policy against unsafe food.”
