Following the anxiety of the public over the issue of “artificial eggs” having plastic-like quality, Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee has encouraged people of Bengal to consume eggs with any fear.
“I had a discussion with the Bengal poultry foundation. I have given them the responsibility to label eggs produced in Bengal. Bengal produces 80 lakh eggs. There is no problem with eggs produced in Bengal. Just check that they should be Bengal eggs,” she said.
The CM said action will be taken if something is discovered. “We will become self-sufficient in egg production. We will set up poultries for ducks like we have for hens,” she said.
