Karnataka Govt to introduce millets in mid-day meals, Indira Canteens

Bengaluru: The Kumaraswamy government is mulling to introduce millets in the mid-day meals and Indira canteens in Karnataka in a bid to promote the crop.
Agriculture Minister Shivashankar Reddy said that the government has decided to speak to the multinational companies (MNCs) to include the same in their canteens.
“Rural areas consume millets and we need to push it among the urban population as well. We also want to increase its sale in urban areas. Hence, MNCs will also be requested to introduce millet meal once a day in their canteens,” Reddy said.
