UP’s new CM is making all the right moves from the day he took charge of his office. Now taking cue from late Tamil Nadu boss Jayalalitha’s Amma Canteens, Uttar Pradesh CM Yogi Adityanath is good to go to dispatch his own containers, giving sustenance to the less special at just Rs 5.
As per the early reports, these Canteens will serve breakfast at Rs 3 and lunch & dinner at just Rs 5 across the state.
The plan, named the ‘Annapurna Bhojanalya’, is being detailed by the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) government in the state that will provide subsidised food to students, those working in the low income group in private sectors, workers and attendants of patients.
The breakfast will include combinations of tea with either dalia, idli, sambhar, poha, pakoras or kachori while lunch and dinner will include six chappatis with vegetables of dal and chawal. Food will be served in steel plates and water purifiers will be installed in all canteens.
A presentation in this regard was made before Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath who has asked officials to proceed with the scheme which will be implemented in all 14 nagar nigams of the state.
According to an official in the labour department, the pilot project will be launched in Lucknow, Kanpur, Gorakhpur and Ghaziabad.
