Boarders Students voice concern over unhygienic food

ISLAMABAD: The bachelors and students living in private hostels of twin cities of Islamabad and Rawalpindi have complained that the hostels administration do not serve hygienic food to them and the authorities concerned have turned a blind eye to it. A group of hostels inmates told that most of the hostels’ kitchens do not follow the proper hygienic principles posing health risks to the boarders. ‘We have been quite used of getting stomach problems because of unhygienic food being served to us in the hostels. We cannot stop eating at the hostels because we are compelled to eat whatever they offer. We have no option at all,’ they observed. They said that dish has been prepared with sub standard rice. They further complained that the authorities concerned neither visit the hostels nor listen to our grievances. They appealed to the authorities concerned to take notice of the matter and formed a committee to regularize the hostels under any authority, as they will have bound to follow the food standards. Shams Abbasi, an employee living in local private hostel alleged that though foods provided by the hostels are very cheap but have poor quality. He said that the hostels are charging too much but in return food provided are not meeting the required standard. ‘They charged more from them than available in the markets, a student alleged. When contacted one private hostel manager said that he was not satisfied with his earnings because the bachelor consume food more but pay less amount for it. He said that hostel management is charging around Rs.2000 per month for three meals, which is very cheap and affordable. He said that in this amount we cannot afford to serve them quality food but claimed that whatever food they served to boarders’ proper hygienic principles are being taken care of. However, he said that if they demanding high quality foods than they must pay high charges. app.
