After Beef, BJP Now Wants a Ban on Momos, People Slams on Twitter

BJP MLC Ramesh Arora said that the sale of Momo's has decreased by 35% since he has started the campaign of spreading awareness about side-effects of Momo


When we think about fast food,Momo’s are the first thing that comes in our mind,not because they are tasty but because of their easy availability make them so popular.

It is correct to say that momos are really giving a tough competition to the very famous and tasty Indian snack ‘samosa’, especially among the younger generations.

Despite this,many people are still against Momo’s,yes you read it right!! Rakesh Arora,BJP MLC from J&K,feels that ‘Momos are the root cause of several life-threatening diseases,that also includes intestine cancer.
BJP is related to many controversies such as beef-eating and ban on the sale of cattle for slaughter and now BJP MLC is running a campaign against Momo’s.
The main reason that Arora is disliking Momo’s is that it has Monosodium Glutamate which is also referred as ajinomoto and is used for increasing the taste of food items.

Regarding ajinomoto, he said

“Ajinomoto, a kind of salt,causes serious diseases, including cancer. It is responsible for converting a minor headache and migraine.”

As per National Herald, Ramesh Arora is also not happy about the fact that the foreigners like Bangladeshi and Burmese are carrying out their business of selling Momo’s and it is adding more aggressiveness to his campaign.
Ramesh Arora also said that the sale of Momo’s has decreased by 35% since he has started the campaign of spreading awareness about side-effects of Momo’s through seminars and meetings.
However it seems that his party members are not only willing to leave mom’s as Jitender Singh, the Minister of State for PM Office, has been seen enjoying momos in a post on social media site Facebook.
