aditi restautant, mumbai restaurant, UPA government
Mumbai: Mumbai restaurant has become the center of attraction after youth workers of the Congress allegedly forced it to shut down on Monday because the owner had printed bills with a note criticizing the UPA government.
The owner of the eatery, Srinivas Shetty, had printed the note on food bills for the customer as a mark of protest on tax on AC restaurants, the receipt read "As per UPA government, eating money (2G, Coal, CWG scam) is a necessity and eating food in an AC restaurant is a luxury".
On getting to know of the matter, Congress workers move forcefully into the restaurant Aditi Pure Veg, located on Dr E Borges Road opposite KEM Hospital on Monday, and asked the owner to close the place. For much of the day, it was trending on Twitter as #AditiRestaurant.
"Height of intolerance!" tweeted senior BJP leader Narendra Modi.
Mumbai Youth Congress Chief Ganesh Kumar Yadav claimed: "We did not shut down the restaurant - just took legal action. We protested peacefully."
The "peaceful protests" ended when the owner apologised.
However the restaurant reopened on Tuesday, the bill slamming the tax on AC restaurants by UPA has been discontinued.
