Two girls were taken ill after having mid-day meal at a Delhi government school in East of Kailash in which a dead lizard was allegedly found, prompting Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia to order the termination of the food supplier's contract.
Sisodia, who visited the Rajkiya Sarvodaya Kanya Vidyalaya, said the students were admitted to a hospital and were stated to be stable.
Sisodia, also the education minister of Delhi, said it was a "major negligence" and such incidents cannot be tolerated.
Another supplier has been asked to provide mid-day meal to all government schools till a new arrangement is made, he added.
