The hotel and restaurant industry will hold a protest on Thursday against the Maharashtra government’s decision to shut down businesses under the new guidelines issued to curb Covid-19 cases.
Hospitality associations across the state, including the FHRAI, HRAWI, NRAI, AHAR and other local associations, have formed the United Hospitality Forum of Maharashtra (UHF) and started the #MissionRoziRoti campaign to protest against the shutdown. Earlier, retail shops had held protests in many parts of Mumbai against the government order.
“The UHF has organised a silent protest outside all hotels and restaurants in the state on 8 April 2021 at 12.30 PM. The associations have stated that hotels and restaurants are in deep financial trouble and without the government’s consideration, the industry will be staring at a catastrophe. Owners will protest outside their hotels and restaurants,” said Hotels and Restaurants Association of Western India (HRAWI) in a statement on Wednesday.
According to the Break The Chain order, restaurants are to be totally shut except for take-away, parcels and food delivery services between 7 am and 8 pm on weekdays and on weekends, only food deliveries will be allowed. The state has also mandated all food delivery personnel to be either vaccinated or undergo RT-PCR tests to test negative for Covid-19 at intervals of every 15 days.
