Islamabad administration on Saturday sealed two cafeterias of the Parliament House in Islamabad after cockroaches were found in the food.
Many of the Parliamentarians had already stopped having meals in these cafeterias owing to substandard food.
After the latest incident where the lawmakers discovered cockroaches in their food, they lodged a complaint with Islamabad’s district administration.
When the administration officials conducted a raid there, they witnessed pests in the cafeteria and kitchen besides poor hygiene practices.
Following this, they sealed two cafeterias of the Parliament House.
This is not the first such incident of the sort. Back in 2014, a cockroach was found from inside a ketchup bottle in a cafeteria of the House.
The lawmakers had also raised questions on the quality of meat used in the meals in 2019.
The abysmal cleanliness standard is not limited to the Parliament House only. Mice infestation had also been reported in the Parliament Lodges in the past.
