Muni’s answer: People’s taste is violated”
      Dewang Dani, chairman of the Ahmedabad Municipal Corporation’s Town Planning and Estate Committee, said the ban on non-veg lorries was a violation of public order due to meat, mutton, fish and egg lorries plying on public roads in the city. Its citizens are having trouble getting out because of its ugliness.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                       “Rule: Meat, mutton should not be seen in public, even if licensed”
      In Ahmedabad, even if the shops selling meat, mutton, fish or eggs have licenses, they will not be able to keep such items in public. If such shops keep meat, mutton, fish, eggs visible to the public, they will be instructed for the first time to keep all such items in such a way that they will not be visible to the public, if the instruction is not followed the shop will be sealed. The sale in the shop should be of closed body.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                              “Daily sale of 18 lakh eggs in Ahmedabad alone”
