Hyderabad is very famous for Biryani. Many celebrities and politicians, whenever they visit Hyderabad, they make it sure to have Biryani. Most of the hotels serve Biryani until late night.
Except at some very odd times of the day, mostly we can get Biryani any time in the day. But suddenly it seems there is Biryani scarcity in Hyderabad for regular customers.
Reportedly, there is a Biryani shortage in the afternoon and in the night. As this is election season, election campaigning is in full swing.
Most of the candidates, belonging to leading political parties as well as independent candidates are mobilizing crowds, doing rallies and campaigning rigorously along with huge crowds. And these crowds come at a ‘cost’. The minimum thing they expect is food i.e. lunch and dinner to be provided by the leaders. So, Biryanies are selling fast in this election season.
Normal people are surprised to hear Biryani is not available in their favorite Biryani spots and when asked hotel management saying them that, because of election season, Biryanis are selling so fast.
Meanwhile, Telangana chief electoral officer Rajat Kumar has proposed to the political parties that the cost of mutton biryani would be reduced from Rs 170 to Rs 140; that of chicken biryani from Rs 140 to Rs 120 per plate.
If the Election Commission has its way, the cost of biryani, the favourite food item for the Telanganites, will come down. Of course, this reduction is not for hotels and restaurants, but only for the candidates who have to spend huge money on supplying food to their party workers during the electioneering.

While the cost of a plate of lemon rise was brought down from Rs 40 to Rs 30, the cost of vegetarian meals, however, would go up from Rs 45 to Rs 60 a plate. The cost of other eateries like Idli and Vada and beverages like tea and coffee was also proposed to be reduced.
All this is to curtail the election expenditure of candidates, since money spent on food is also accounted for by the EC. The political parties are seeking further reduction in prices of food items. #KhabarLive
