And second, the interim order of the Supreme Court to regulate sale of acid in local stores and industrial units will be implemented with immediate affect until the government comes up with a “module” to do the same. We have recently been witness to unfortunate deaths of several children in Bihar after eating their State-sponsored (0.55 Rs per meal) mid-day meal. This explains the state of government schemes and laws in this nation when it comes to their implementation. I am scared by the time acid sale is actually regulated on ground, many more may fall prey to this inhuman violence.
