  2. This is a retrogressive policy and action. It is madness that government agency is destroying food item when there is hungry in the country. This item should have been sold at a very cheap price and the government use the money to do other projects.
    I am ashamed that there is no right thinking people among the custom to insist that the chicken should not be destroyed.
