The entire country has come to a standstill due to the covid-19 lockdown. Also, amid the crisis, government is trying their best to ensure that there is no shortage of food.

Menawhile, a video of children from Jehanabad, Bihar made a lot of buzz on social media. In the video, children claimed that they have been eating frogs for four days as there is no food at home due to lockdown.

This video was published by a news website and PIB has rejected the claims saying,  DM Jehanabad inquiry finds there is sufficient food  in their houses and the video was made by a few irresponsible people.

Also, District magistrate of Jehanabad says that the video was circulated and misused by people who wanted to tarnish the image of the government.
