Four days after a case was filed against a UP journalist for filming students at a government school in Mirzapur eating rotis with salt as their midday meal, villagers have now come out in support of the reporter. A video from the Siur primary school in Jamalpur block of Mirzapur shows young children sitting on the floor of the school corridor, eating rotis with salt under a flagship scheme of the central government. The video was shot on August 22 by Pawan Jaiswal, who works with a local Hindi daily, Jansandesh Times.
