A mini restaurant in Allahabad is all set to serve a pure vegetarian Yogi Thali for Rs 10 on the first day of every month.
“The thali will be available at ‘Baba Da Dhaba’ near Attarsuiya crossing from September 1. The meal will be free for the differently-abled, saints and the poor. For others it will cost Rs 10,” said Dilip Kumar ‘Kakay’ , owner of the restaurant and district president of Akhil Bharatiya Khatri Mahasabha.
Kakay said the meal will include rice, pulses, a seasonal vegetable, two tandoori roti or four ‘kachaudi’, pickle, salad etc. “It will be a pure vegetarian thali without onion and garlic. The thali will cost us Rs 30-40. Usually, the customers get this thali for Rs 50 or more. Once we get more funds, we will serve a sweet also.
A part of the profit, which we will make on other days, will be set aside to serve the Yogi thali on the first of every month. We have not asked for any financial aid from anyone. However, if people come forward to donate food grains etc, we can provide the meal for Rs 10 on a daily basis,” he added.
Kakay further said he has named the thali after the CM because he feels that Yogi Adityanath is working for the welfare of common man.
Kakay, who is also the joint secretary of Jeev Kalyan Evam Shiksha Samiti said if the government supports him, he is willing to serve the Yogi thali at the Kumbh Mela 2019. “This thali will be free for saints, seers and the disabled. We’ll charge Rs 5 from rural pilgrims and Rs 10 from others,” he shared.
