Congress men shut down eatery over bill note

Unable to swallow the 'insult' after Parel restaurant prints bills with a note slamming UPA government, Congress men force it to shut down; owner says he had printed it to protest tax on AC restaurants

Angry, young Congress men on Monday swamped a popular restaurant in Parel, opposite KEM Hospital, because the owner had started printing 'defamatory' material against the United Progressive Alliance (UPA) central government on food bills.

Around 30 to 35 workers of the Indian Youth Congress -- which is chaired by party vice-president Rahul Gandhi -- approached the restaurant, Aditi Pure Veg, around 3 pm. Led by Ganesh Kumar Yadav, city president of the party's youth wing, and party MLA Kalidas Kolambkar, they approached the hotel and asked the owner to shut shop.

The marching orders for the swoop down came from the party headquarters in Delhi, said Congress workers, and after receiving them, they clamped down on the restaurant and later approached the Bhoiwada police against the businessman for defamation.
