The Ahmedabad Municipal Corporation in Gujarat on Monday decided to remove stalls selling non-vegetarian food items from the main roads, The Indian Express reported.

Gujarat Chief Minister Bhupendra Patel, however, claimed that the state government was not bothered about what people ate, calling the drive a move against road encroachments.

“Stalls selling non-vegetarian items will not be allowed along public roads and in the 100-meter radius of schools, colleges and religious places, Town Planning Committee of Ahmedabad Municipal Corporation has decided,” said Committee Chairperson Devang Dani, according to ANI.

Dani said the decision was taken as there were complaints of “bad smell” from morning walkers, those visiting religious spaces and “parents as these were leaving negative impact on minds of young children”, reported The Indian Express.
