[RxPG] Phulbani -, March 13 - Dozens of students of a state-run school in Orissa have left their hostel, protesting the poor and substandard food provided to them, officials said Tuesday.

Around 30-40 students of the government primary school at Munigarh in the tribal district of Phulbani, 200 km from Bhubaneswar, vacated their hostel Monday. They alleged that they have not been given any non-vegetarian food for the past six months by the teacher in-charge of the mess.

Though the government has sanctioned Rs.300 every month for each boy's food, the mess in-charge had misappropriated the money and provided substandard food, one of the boys who left the hostel alleged.

The school's headmaster Abhimanyu Baral, however, denied the allegation. 'The students have left the hostel but I don't know why. The food quality was never bad. We are trying to bring the children back to the hostel,' Baral told IANS.

The school, which has 28 girls and 12 boys from Classes 1-5, is run by the Integrated Tribal Development Agency - under the state tribal department.

'I have asked two senior ITDA officials to visit the spot and investigate the incident,' said Biswanath Mallik, the project administrator.

'We will take strong action if we find any of the school officials involved in the alleged irregularities,' he added.
