Bengaluru: The Bruhat Bengaluru Hoteliers Association has written to the health department, Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike (BBMP) and FSSAI demanding that the roadside eateries be regulated. The move was prompted by the scare of a cholera outbreak in the city.

The hoteliers, in the letter, noted that there are close to 30,000 roadside eateries that are operating illegally and are not hygienic. “The high court has also noted that such eateries should be regulated. Recently, a few students fell sick after consuming pani puri from a roadside eatery. Given that the heat is increasing and the city is reeling under a water crisis, it is our collective responsibility to take measures to prevent the spread of diseases like Cholera and dengue,” the letter stated.

They demanded that these eateries should be shut down and suggested that the BBMP could set up food courts to help these vendors get other opportunities.
