In 1964, Lal Bahadur Shastri was elected prime minister of India. People in India at the time were struggling to survive. Lal Bahadur Shastri’s principal goal is to curb the rise in food item costs. Also, he wanted the meal to be accessible to all citizens of the country.
Throughout his ministry, there are numerous ongoing food shortages. Despite being a witty man, he asked everyone to leave their single email for the day. Consequently, the need for food among the impoverished was met. Indians embraced his proposal, and he too skipped his one meal for a while.
