Campaign for food security launched

Thiruvananthapuram: As many as 50 school teachers signed a pledge at MV Higher Secondary School, Arumanoor, near here, on Monday promising to spend at least 30 minutes a day on activities related to food production.

The pledge was part of a State-wide campaign for food security launched by the Hind Swaraj Centenary Committee, Santhigram and Mitraniketan to observe the centenary of Hind Swaraj, the book authored by Mahatma Gandhi. Mitraniketan director K. Viswanathan inaugurated the campaign by planting a mango sapling on the school premises.

Hind Swaraj Centenary Committee general convener Sunny Paikada received the pledge. School manager V. Jayachandran administered a community pledge on food security.
