New Delhi : FSSAI, in a letter to the union government, has sought removal of a member of the Animal Welfare Board of India for allegedly spearheading an unsubstantiated campaign regarding the adulteration of milk in India.

According to the sources, M S Ahluwalia, member, AWBI, was found involved in spreading false claims about the adulteration of milk in India and subsequently FSSAI wrote a letter to the Department of Animal Husbandry under the Ministry of Dairying for his removal.

FSSAI, in its letter, charged that Ahluwalia, while holding a public office as member of AWBI, made claims that adulterants in milk are hazardous, and nearly 90 per cent of the population would suffer from serious illnesses like cancer in a decade from now.

It also added that the concerned person has also falsely quoted the World Health Organization (WHO) for his claim, whereas WHO refuted his claims.

The letter also said that the claims made by the AWBI member had the potential to create panic among the people in the country.

It sought his removal from the board, saying, “Looking into the seriousness of the claims, appropriate action as per norms should be initiated against Ahluwalia for spreading such unsubstantiated fear among the general public.”

According to FSSAI, it was done to express concern on the unvalidated statement made by the person in question. Even WHO stated that no such advisory was issued regarding the adulteration of the milk in the country, and such statements wrongly referring to WHO had created fear amongst the public, and therefore, required appropriate action.

When contacted, Ahluwalia said that he had no information of such a letter as yet.
