In Gujarat’s latest move, non-vegetarian food stalls have been removed from city streets in Ahmedabad. The government in Ahmedabad has decided to ban non-vegetarian food booths from public roadways and those running within a 100-meter radius of schools, colleges, and religious buildings.
It was reported on Saturday that BJP president C R Paatil had contacted the officials in Vadodara and Rajkot Municipal Corporations and asked them not to remove non-vegetarian food stalls from the streets. In the end, leaders decided to remove these food carts because of their own personal preferences” (in municipal corporations). The BJP in the state of Rajasthan has little to do with the matter at all. No, we’re not going to apply it over the whole state.
According to the chairman of AMC’s Town Planning and Estate Management Committee, Devang Dani, orders have been approved by the Estate Department to conduct checking on Tuesday morning and remove trolleys selling egg and non-vegetarian meals from the major streets. These will be taken down starting at 8 a.m. tomorrow. The carts are also prohibited within a 100-meter radius of religious sites, gardens, and public places.
In the early mornings, neighbors and parents alike complained about the stench from these carts. ” “They had a terrible effect on the psyche of young children,” Dani said.
According to Jainik Vakil, chairman of the AMC Revenue Committee, non-vegetarian food should be banned from being sold on roads “in order to immediately clear encroachment by illegitimately proliferating non-vegetarian carts on the city’s public roads, religious and educational locations and other places” because of Gujarat’s “identity and “tradition”.
However, street food carts that are selling “unhygienic” food or that are hindering traffic on municipal streets may be called to task, Patel said.
The BJP administration does not have an issue with individuals eating vegetarian or non-vegetarian meals. Demands have been made to remove some carts (larries) off the street.
Patel remarked at a BJP event in Bandhani village in Anand district: “Our main worry is that the food provided from food carts should not be unsanitary.” The CM said that local governments are responsible for removing food trucks if they are obstructing traffic on the road.
Committees like Urban Planning and Management Services, which are made up of elected officials, are discussed by the Standing Committee, which is the municipal governments’ most powerful decision-making body.
When it comes to decisions made by the Standing Committee of Gujarat Provincial Municipal Corporation Act 1949, the Municipal Commissioner needs to sign off on them first.
