From now on, people looking for cost-effective and fresh food can heave a sigh of relief as the costs of all basic items have increased due to the pandemic, and many are finding it difficult to make both ends meet. Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation (GHMC) is all set to increase the count of Annapurna Canteens in its limits.


It is already known that the food provided at these canteens is priced at Rs 5. One development is that many such canteens will be started around government hospitals like Niloufer. Incidentally, well-known social activist Sunitha Krishnan tweeted asking the government to start Annapurna canteens in a public-private partnership to help the attendees have breakfast, lunch, and dinner. She further stated that such a move would put a stop to the ad-hoc distribution of food at such hospitals, which hurts the dignity of a person.


Responding to the same, MA & UD minister KT Rama Rao tweeted back saying that there are many such canteens and added that the government would be happy to create more if it helps the attendees.


The minister did not stop there. He then tagged city mayor Gadwal Vijayalakshmi and GHMC commissioner DS Lokesh Kumar and asked them to verify and improve the canteens where needed.


In response, the mayor responded pro-actively and said they would look into the matter and take action. Only recently, GHMC took up renovation of Annapurna canteens by changing the seating arrangements and putting up colorful boards to welcome the customers.


There are about 200 Annapurna canteens within GHMC limits and about 60,000 people, mostly the poor and daily wage earners, make use of this facility.
