Three days after local meat sellers went on a strike, students at the Aligarh Muslim University (AMU) have complained to the varsity authorities about the "bland" food being served in dining halls as the prices of chicken, vegetables etc have risen.
Faizul Hasan, President of the AMU Students' Union, has written to AMU Vice Chancellor Lt Gen (retd) Zameer Uddin Shah, following which the University administration has called a meeting to resolve the issue.
In his letter, Hasan has said that an “acute shortage of meat supply” is leading to a broader food crisis since the supply and cost of alternate food items have also started being adversely affected.
He suggested that a centralised purchase system should be put in place to ensure that the entire meat supply is through a registered meat supplier.
