Q NO - WHY DO WE NEED FOOD SECURITY .

Asked by ajaykataria222 | 3rd Feb, 2018, 07:15: PM

Expert Answer:

There is a need for food security in India because more than one-fourth of our population is living below the poverty line. Further, agriculture in India hugely depends on rainfall. In cases of failure of rainfall, many areas suffer from famines which results in the untimely deaths of many people due to starvation and epidemic diseases. Kalahandi and Kashipur in Odisha are places which have been suffering from famines since many years. Therefore, food security is required in the country.
