Thousands of women workers of the mid-day meal scheme in Andhra Pradesh (AP), mobbed the house of minister Ganta Srinivas Rao, for giving away contracts to private parties to run the mid-day meals. They blocked all routes to the minister's house and began protesting since this afternoon. Police had a tough time trying to control the mobs. They arrested a few women, but the remaining continued to stage protests demanding justice. They said that some them invested their own money and took loans to run the scheme. But the government did not even pay them back.
