Hubballi: Congress party workers celebrated former Prime Minister Indira Gandhi’s birthday in a unique way, they cleaned Indira Canteens established by the then-Siddaramaiah government to provide good quality food to the poor, laborers, and others at a very affordable price.
The party workers cleaned these canteens, which were established in various parts of Hubballi Dharwad. In Dharwad, Congress leader Nagaraj Gouri and his team cleaned the canteens and affixed new posters of the late prime minister. Gouri stated, “The posters were faded, and we noticed it while cleaning the canteen, so these photos were immediately replaced with the new image.”
Nagaraj Gouri said that Indira Canteens were established by the former CM Siddaramaiah with the intention that the poor, laborers, and working class should get good quality food at an affordable price, and these canteens have since then filled the stomachs of people who cannot afford food at eateries.
He expressed concern that the quality of the food being served at these canteens is not up to par. The state government should enhance the quality and quantity of the food served through these canteens.
Nagaraj Gouri is doing many social works through his foundation, he has been serving people of Hubballi-Dharwad (West) constituency. Recently, he submitted an application seeking Congress party ticket to contest the election from the HD West constituency.
Congress leader Rajat Ullagaddimath and his team, with the help of residents of Hubballi, cleaned the Indira Canteens.
