It is true that giving food to starving people is a service to God, the MLA said.Naik said he would provide 1,250 food packets to each of the 33 Gram Panchayats of Devadurga taluk every day for one month, and 24 vans would take the food to the villages. He said that providing food to patients, doctors and medical staff of 46 hospitals (including private hospitals) of the taluk had commenced on May 14.
