About 1,500 girl students to receive 200 ml of milk every day: Sikkim CM



About 1,500 girl students would receive 200 ml of milk every day following the launch of the "Free Gift Milk to Girl Students of Sikkim" initiative by Chief Minister P.S. Tamang at Gangtok last week.

Tamang called the initiative a step towards eradicating malnutrition and other health problems among the young generation.

He said the State Government is planning to extend it on a larger scale.

Tamang highlighted the government initiatives to achieve the vision such as an incentive of the "Rs 8 per litre of milk" produced by dairy farmers, besides the standard price and other benefits for agricultural practices in Sikkim.

He also encouraged the youth to take up farming as a profession.
