Quotes

"As an organization, we really believe in community sustainability," said NEAT program coordinator Karen Mason-Bennett. "The foundation of that is just being able to find healthy food. Food security is really important, and this is just one of the ways we can raise awareness around it, and help build skills for people within the community as well."
"We have to stress on cleanliness, sanitation. By 2019 we must ensure a Swacch Bharat. Modi went on to say, "Dignity of women is our responsibility. We have to ensure that we provide toilets for all.""
...This will excise inefficiencies such as FCI's loader salaries of .` "1 lakh a month and insufficient and inferior storage of grain. FCI must stop paying for extortionate state levies on grain purchase. A 14.5% mandi tax in Punjab or 10.5% levy in Haryana on the procurement price only drives private trade out and distorts the market. Why should the Centre devolve funds to select states in the guise of food subsidy? The MSP should subsume all taxes in it."
"The group will not only be 'self-sufficient' but also extending their successes to other community members."
