HAZARIBAG: Nearly 500 students (both girls and boys), studying at the Pahar Middle School in Keredari block of Hazaribag district, boycotted the midday meal served to them on Wednesday as they were prepared by two dalit cooks.
Reports reaching the district headquarters on Thursday said the two new cooks - Anita Devi and Jitni Devi - both dalits, were selected during a general meeting of the Gram Shiksha Samiti on March 27. Tulsi Sao, the headmaster as well as the secretary of the managing committee, said, "At the meeting, 12 members of the samiti, including the panchayat samiti member Umera Khatun, were present. Khatun, along with the other members, approved of the appointments."
