BJP proposes ‘Namo tea stall’ to counter Shiv Sena’s ‘vada pav’

In a attempt to counter the Shiv Sena which has promoted ‘Shiv’ vada-pav eateries across Mumbai, its ruling alliance partner at the Municipal corporation of Greater Mumbai, wants ‘Namo tea stalls’ on Mumbai roads.

Manoj Kotak, the BJP group leader in the Municipal Corporation of Greater Mumbai said that the idea was proposed by the BJP corporator Prakash Gangadhare and it was discussed in the party meeting in which the members endorsed it.

“The proposal has been forwarded to the MCGM commissioner. MCGM is finalising the list and details of the illegal hawkers in the city at present. So I suggested a slight modification (to the concept) that there should be no illegality while allotting these NaMo tea stalls,” he said.
