Food security law benefits thousands in India

Nearly 70 percent of more than a billion Indians are now guaranteed cheap food.

    One big issue for Indians hittting their second week of general elections, is food security. The right to food was enshrined in  a law enacted in 2013 across India but the state government in Chattisgarh was one step ahead in bringing in the legislation two years earlier.

    The new law guarantees cheap food for nearly 70 percent of more than a billion Indians, a task that is not easy.
