Lucknow: The famous Tundey Kebabi, which was once famous for its beef kebabs, has been serving mutton kebabs post the crackdown of illegal slaughterhouses and the shortage of beef caused by it.
Very soon, the mutton kebabs can also be out of the menu as now mutton shops across Lucknow have been shut down after Lucknow Municipal Authority denied renewal of licences.
Less than month ago and after the crackdown on illegal mechanised slaughterhouses by the Yogi government, there was a crisis-like situation for meat sellers. The situation remains the same as meat vendors have been denied licences.
Around 147 of 600 meat shops in Lucknow had licences to sell meat, but as their licences expired 15th April, they are now illegal and cannot sell meat anymore. There was a 15-day grace period given to the meat vendors after their licences expired on March 31.
Meat vendors of the city on Monday staged a protest in the Old Lucknow area near Shaheed Smarak and demanded renewal of their licences. They claimed that the non-renewal of licences by the LMC has deprived them of their livelihood; they also made a demand of financial assistance by the Yogi government in order to upgrade their shops as per the norms laid down by the Pollution Control Board and Food Safety and Standards Authority of India.
Secretary of Lucknow Bakri Murga Gosht Vyapar Mandal Abdul Hamid said families and vendors in large numbers have been hit hard by this crackdown; and that there should have been alternative arrangements before taking such a step. “This is our source of income like many other vendors. The government is not listening to our problems, so we had to protest.”(Get detailed and live results of each and every seat of the state Assemblies in Madhya Pradesh, Rajasthan, Telangana, Chhattisgarh and Mizoram to know which candidate/party is leading or trailing and to know who has won and who has lost and by what margin.
