After Govt Ends Food Subsidy, Here’s What Food At Parliament Canteen Will Cost

There has always been a demand for excluding food subsidy from the parliament canteen that once used to offer Mutton Biryani at just ₹65 and boiled vegetables at ₹12. And interestingly, these prices were for politicians who literally get all the benefits mostly free of cost from the Government of India.
