She revealed the government has filed an affidavit in court. She added that there was nothing wrong and the issue has been explained several times in the past. However, Congress MLA Ameen Patel sought to know what action the minister has taken against the contractors for the supply of sub-standard chikki, which is served to children in schools.

Munde admitted that there were complaints from Jalgaon, Ahmednagar, Amravati and Nandurbar on sub-standard chikki. The samples were sent to various labs for testing. The reply says that while Pune lab said the chikki sample from Ahmednagar was proved not worth consuming, as a result the stock was withdrawn.
