Amma canteens: Mayor rules out irregularities

Mayor P. Rajkumar, who inspected Amma canteen on Wednesday, ruled out irregularities. He said that he visited the canteen near the Flower Market in the morning and found no anomalies.

When Deputy Commissioner P. Gandhimathi visited a few other canteens based on his instructions, she too found the canteens to be running in the right direction.

It was wrong to say that the food prepared in the budget canteens were being diverted to the private hotels.

The 1,200 idlis at four each a person and 300 sambar and curd rice plates were emptied out in minutes as the patronage continued to be very good. In fact, the members of the public were urging the Corporation to increase the quantity and varieties, Mr. Rajkumar said.
