It is a good move to ban open display of non-vegetarian food items, as they attract insects and exposed to dust and all the other things in the air. The wetter the food product, the more the chances. One can argue that why only non-veg and not veg food dishes. Considering the keywords of party, place, and food, there seems to be a hint at a political bias. Many reports carry that the ban on raw and prepared meat outside/kept exposed also is that it affects the sentiments of the vegetarians in the area. Sounds like an unwanted issue, hope the authorities realize it and ban both. My worry is entirely another issue, how will the somosa vendors, pav bhaji sellers, bhelpuri and the channa vendors do their business. I think they have to go back to the oil tin like larger containers that food vendors use on the beaches to sell snacks. Now, it wouldn't be a surprise if all the vendors ask for financial aid to cover their food items.
