During his address, Siddaramaiah recalled the positive impact of previous nutritional initiatives, citing the increase in milk production during the Congress government’s tenure in 2013. He specifically mentioned the Ksheerabhagya scheme, which provided milk to schoolchildren five days a week. The scheme, implemented through the Karnataka Milk Federation (KMF), not only ensured regular milk supply but also supported local farmers by compensating them for their contributions. In addition to the milk program, the government recently introduced a scheme to provide eggs to schoolchildren twice a week, as revealed in the last budget.
