It has been reported that Ayesha Mumtaz has been fired from her job as Punjab Food Authority Director. The Iron Lady who is famous for shutting down well known restaurants for poor hygienic conditions, reportedly asked for a hundred day leave after raising concerns to her officers about the reopening of some eateries that were shut down by her.
Although it has yet to be confirmed by the Punjab government, it seems sad that the PFA director has been removed from her post for taking a stand against sub-standard food practices.
Her operation against the top restaurants in Punjab revealed that a lot of high-end restaurantsâ€™ hygiene was not up to mark. Subsequently, we saw the closing down of many popular restaurants since June of 2016. In a span of three short months, she inspected 6000 eateries across Punjab and made no exceptions when it came down to sealing eateries with unhygienic conditions.
Her work was supported by the prime minister and many appreciated and applauded her efforts, which hopefully have not gone to waste.
