THIS refers to unhygienic fast food being sold on pavements and other public places. While there is no one to check the vendors selling such unhygienic food, it is creating serious health issues.

The majority of our population is Muslim. As Muslims, we believe in cleanliness. What are the authorities concerned doing to check this menace?

I urge the authorities to deal with this issue strictly.
