The Piece of Chicken Found in Veg Food in Maharashtra House Canteen
Yesterday the dharma bhrashta act happened in Maharashtra state canteen where there was a chicken piece in the vegetarian food. Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis on Thursday said an inquiry was on to ascertain if the kitchen where the dish was prepared followed food safety norms. Alike the foreign countries since Indian people are not so open to the variable food habits this appearance of the chicken in a vegetarian food was a little disguise for the people. Speaking in the state Assembly when the issue was raised by NCP member Ajit Pawar, Mr. Fadnavis said strict instructions would be given to the canteen staff to ensure that such an incident does not happen again. This incident will now not let people trust the chefs in the canteen, and the food quality that they serve.
On Wednesday, a government official ordered ”matki usual” (a vegetarian Maharashtrian dish) in the canteen and found chicken pieces in it.
After Mr. Pawar raised the issue, Congress member Vijay Waddetiwar also told the Lower House that cow dung was recently found in the food served to a patient at the Government Medical College in Nagpur.
To this, Mr. Fadnavis said, “This is a serious issue and the guilty (in the hospital incident) will be suspended.”
He said instructions will also be given to check if the kitchen in the Vidhan Bhavan premises was adhering to guidelines of the Food Safety and Standards Authority of India (FSSAI).
The Centre has enacted a new Food Safety Act, Fadnavis said, adding that his government will ensure its compliance in the state.
