ALLAHABAD: A subsidized meal facility for just Rs.10 was launched by Allahabad mayor Abhilasha Gupta on Sunday evening. The affordable meal has been named as ‘Yogi thali’. The thali will be available at ‘Baba Da Dhaba’ near Attarsuiya crossing from September 1.
The meal will be free for the differently-abled, saints and the poor. For others it will cost Rs 10,” said Dilip Kumar ‘Kakay’ , owner of the restaurant and district president of Akhil Bharatiya Khatri Mahasabha.
After launching the ‘Yogi thali’, Gupta said, “It is an initiative by a private individual. This facility has started from today on the name of Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath. It is a thali for Rs 10 and I am sure disabled, poor, needy, saints etc. would be greatly benefitted from this initiative. This is a good thought where even those who cannot afford a full meal normally can get it here.”
The man behind the initiative, Dilip alias Kaake said meal will include rice, pulses, a seasonal vegetable, two tandoori roti or four ‘kachaudi’, pickle, salad etc. “It will be a pure vegetarian thali without onion and garlic. The thali will cost us Rs 30-40. Usually, the customers get this thali for Rs 50 or more.
