MYSORE: A committee appointed by High Court headed by Justice N K Patil has appealed to the public, non-governmental organisations (NGO) and others to come up with suggestions for sustainable development to eradicate malnutrition among children across the state.

The panel was appointed by the Chief Justice of the High Court to submit an action plan recommending effective ways to overcome malnourishment among children in the state.

He said there are around 68,000 children suffering from malnutrition in the state.

He said the survey will show exact figures on children suffering from malnutrition.

“When the Committee visited Gulbarga, Bidar, Belgaum and other parts of the state, we witnessed many children in Dalit colonies suffering from malnutrition.

Their mothers do not possess BPL ration cards, they cannot avail food grains through PDS,” he lamented.

He said they will submit an interim report to the High Court before June 12.
