How long will the queue be this Dussehra

Apart from the tall effigies of Ravan, the city is famous for its delectable street food. The people of Ahmedabad spend their nine nights gorging on hot jalebis and fafdas. Reportedly, the city has made about 300 tonnes of fafda and over 150 tonnes of jalebis this Navratri. A recent report suggests the mithai shops of Ahmedabad reuses food items like oil, ghee and food colours, especially during Navaratri to meet the constant demand for snacks. So, to avoid such outcomes this Navratri, the Ahmedabad Municipal Corporation (AMC) has laid restriction on makeshift stalls in the city. The civic body has asked every makeshift snack stall to produce a proper food license to set-up a stall in the city, hoping the restriction will help measure the adulteration in food.
