Rajasthan Head of State Ashok Gehlot introduced “Indira Rasoi Yojana” (a food program dedicated to late Prime Minister and Congress leader Indira Gandhi) in 2020 to provide food to needy people in the state at a nominal price. According to the scheme, a person only has to pay INR 8 ($0.096), while INR 17 ($0.20) is paid by the state government.

The Congress-led state government of Rajasthan is in hot water after a video of pigs licking utensils meant to serve food under a government program went viral on social media social.

The video, published by several outlets, shows pigs licking plates in front of MSJ College in the city of Bharatpur.

According to media reports, the kitchen, intended to serve food under the government program, was run by an institution named “Mother Teresa”.

Shortly after the footage went viral, the state’s opposition Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) attacked the Congress government.

BJP spokesman Shehzad Poonawalla said it was not only unsanitary and disgusting, but also humiliating.

He also demanded an investigation into the matter and questioned the Rajasthan state government for failing to maintain cleanliness under the scheme.
