Malnutrition Kills Two Kids In Madhya Pradesh

At least two children have reportedly died from malnutrition in Madhya Pradesh's Gwalior district, child rights activists say //, emblematic of a deep-rooted problem afflicting over 80,000 underprivileged children in this state.

Since the state failed to rehabilitate the rescued families, Jai Prasad of the Morcha knocked the doors of the high court, which directed the district administration and the state labour department to look after the families under the Madhya Pradesh rehabilitation programme.

"The matter pertains to Raisen from where they were brought here," said C.S. Dixit, Gwalior's assistant labour commissioner.

The administration's attitude has made the workers think that they were better off as bonded labour.

"We are being treated like animals, worse than when we were hostage in stone quarries," laments Bharat Adivasi, Chhottu's father.

Added Prasad: "This is happening despite the
