Biraj PatnaikCountry: India
I work on Right to Food issues from a human rights perspective. The Office of the Supreme Court Commissioners was set up by the Supreme Court of India to monitor all the food and employment schemes in India, as part of the landmark right to food case. The Commissioners are responsible for the justiciability of Government programmes on food and employment. They report directly to the Bench of the Supreme Court which hears the RTF case.
I have also been part of the Right to Food Campaign in India since its inception.
