While Uttar Pradesh CM who doesn’t have time from celebrating b’day of his father, Mulayam Singh Yadav, the people of his state are surviving on grass. The situation is not new, they have been surviving on fodders meant for animal for years. Mulayam Singh Yadav, wants to be Prime Minister of India and seeing the way we vote, his dream might come true.

In Lalwadi village in Uttar Pradesh’s Bundelkhand region, they show us where they forage for the next meal: a parched field on the outskirts. Here, they scrape through the mud at the base of a dried stalk of a local grass, known as fikaar. A few seconds later, we are shown a few seeds, almost indistinguishable from the soil.

Thank you!
