Delhi restaurateurs face harassment due to ‘license raj’ : Kejriwal

New Delhi, Oct 11 (UNI) Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Sunday spoke of hassle-free operation of the restaurants in the National Capital, claiming restaurateurs in the city face harassment due to ‘licence raj.’

Taking to twitter, Mr Kejriwal said, “Restaurants contribute to Delhi economy and taxes in a big way. They face harassment due to license raj.”

Sharing news pieces on his twitter handle, he said, “All governments should work together to remove harassment. Central Government body Food Safety and Standards Authority of India (FSSAI) has directed (Municipal Corporation of Delhi) MCDs to stop issuing food licenses. I hope MCDs will comply soon with Centre’s directions,”

Recently, the Kejriwal government had announced the abolition of police licenses and health trade licences, issued by the BJP-ruled municipal corporations, for restaurants. It also set a ten-day deadline for the abolishment of health trade licences.

Some days ago, Delhi CM convened a meeting of the delegates from National Restaurants Association of India in the city discussing measures to promote hassle-free working of the restaurants so that they can be back on track after hitting a slump due to the COVID situation.
