On Saturday, Yuva Zep Pratishthan launched 'Deendayal Thali', a scheme which will allow patients and their relatives to get meals in just Rs 10. The scheme was launched at Government Medical College and Hospital (GMCH), Nagpur. 

This scheme follows the footsteps of Pandit Deendayal Upadhyay, whose motto was to work for needy and poor in the best possible way. With the help of 'Deendayal Thali', thousands of people from far-flung areas will get good quality food at the hospital.

The launch saw the presence of union transport minister Nitin Gadkari. He praised the organization's effort and hopes that the step will help in achieving greater goals.

While addressing the gathering Gadkari revealed that initially, the plan was to provide the meal for free. But for people to understand the value of the food, the thali was later charged for a minimal amount.

“Not many people are privileged enough to get two square meals a day. The condition of patients and their relatives are known to all as many of them have to go without food for want of money. The lunch box scheme will thus provide them with a succour," Gadkari said. 

Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis who was also present at the event suggests that not only food scheme but many other activities like health campaigns should be organized regularly in the remote areas of the state.

Yuva Zep Pratishthan will soon start the food scheme in various hospitals, especially that in the areas of Dhantoli and Ramdaspeth. GMCH already campus has started the work for the scheme and also made arrangements for the kitchen facility.
