India has been accused of allowing thousands of kilos of grain to rot as millions of people go hungry.
About 400 million poor in India cannot afford to buy grain and are dependent on the government for food handouts. To feed them, India uses a decades-old distribution system, but supplies in some warehouses are poorly maintained and have become contaminated, resulting in a huge waste of food.
Experts say there are over a billion tonnes of food grain going to waste throughout India, enough to feed over 600,000 poor for over a decade.
