Members of Opposition, including leader of Opposition Ramdas Kadam and Ganpatrao Deshmukh (PWP), asked why the government did not return low quality, saving Government funds. Mr Deshmukh said the wheat was supplied by the Food Corporation of India and added that the Government immediately disposed it of when it was found to be of inferior quality.
