SDMC directs restaurants not to display meat items outside

The area's civic body has passed a proposal, saying "display of non-vegetarian food items/material publicly by restaurant owners shall be prohibited from now."

The reasons given for the move were "danger of contamination to raw and cooked meat dishes" and "it also hurts the sentiments of the vegetarian public."

Ban on non-veg food display: BJP-ruled SDMC accused of polarising voters; targeting the poor | National Herald

“It is not going to impact businesses as it doesn’t forbid the sale of meat,” he said.“The proposed law just stops eatery owners from displaying ugly non-vegetarian food items. It doesn’t prohibit the sale of meat,” he added.He said that the sentiments of vegetarians were affected when they saw raw meat displayed at eateries and kebab stalls.“It is a step in the direct direction,” he said.
Giving the logic behind the proposed law, BJP councillor and leader of the house in the SDMC Shikha Rai explained that non-vegetarian food was prone to contamination if it was kept in the open for long hours.“India is a warm country. Non-vegetarian food needs to be stored at a certain temperature. If raw meat is kept out in the open and displayed as it is, it gets contaminated quite quickly,” Rai told National Herald.“That is one of the main reasons we have proposed this ban on the display of non-vegetarian food outside,” she added.
