India has well-formulated programs and schemes targeted to alleviate poverty and hunger in the country.  In reality, however, the Government of India lacks political will and accountability to implement these programs and to guarantee the right to adequate food and water.  Essential programs to prevent malnutrition such as the Integrated Child Development Service (ICDS) are not being implemented.  Despite previous demands by the people and FIAN since 2007, the Women and Children's Department hass yet to open an ICDS center in Jalalpur.  In the absence of an Anganwadi center, children and women in Jalapur are denied access to the services and are therefore threatened by malnutrition.
