Guwahati, Feb 21: In Mariani, a town in Upper Assam’s Jorhat district, food is now one less thing to worry about for its over 20,000 residents.

A new food stall, Namo Canteen, was on Sunday opened up in the town where the costliest item, vegetarian platter is worth Rs 8 and if one is downtrodden, free.

The stall, opened by Mariani Development Committee with the initiative of a local BJP leader Alok Kumar, will be able to feed 300 people daily and has a capacity of holding at least 30 people at a time.

“This will solve the food crisis for the daily wagers and those engaged in menial works. They can atleast have a square meal once a day at a negligible rate of Rs 8,” a local in Mariani said.

The restaurant is manned by people following COVID norms by wearing masks, skull caps and gloves to serve food.

According to certain onlookers, along with providing food to the neeedy, the stall named Namo — the initial two letters of the Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s name and surname — will fuel election campaigns in the region ahead of the Assembly elections April this year.

The shop’s temporary gate made with flex sheets, features PM Modi on the left and Swami Vivekananda on the right with their quotes on top. it stands on two pillars that again has Modi on the right with “Ek Bharat Srestha Bharat (One India, Best India)” and former Prime Minister, Atala Bihari Vajpayee’s picture with “Come Lets Light a Lamp Again” written.
