A media report said that the authorities have sealed two cafeterias in Pakistan’s Parliament building after lawmakers complained that cockroaches were found in the food served to them.
According to a report on Saturday by Sama television, Islamabad’s district administration officials raided two cafeterias in the Parliament building, prompting a flurry of complaints from lawmakers about the unhygienic conditions.
It added that the MPs also complained that cockroaches were found in the food they were being served.
The report said that on inspection, they found pests in the eating area and unhygienic conditions in the kitchen, following which the premises were sealed.
Several lawmakers said they have stopped ordering food from these cafeterias because of their poor health condition.
Such incidents are not uncommon in the Parliament House cafeteria.
In 2014, a cockroach was found in a bottle of ketchup in one of these cafeterias.
The report said that in 2019, lawmakers protested the violation of several rules related to the quality and hygiene standards of the food being served in these cafeterias.
