Corporators belonging to the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) demanded the GHMC commissioner, Somesh Kumar, should list out all hotels and restaurants in the GHMC limits which use oil extracted from the carcasses of animals for preparing Biryani and other items.

They demanded that a detailed enquiry by the police and interrogation of culprits should be done to expose the scam and to publicise all the hotels in the  GHMC vicinity. In a letter submitted to commissioner Somesh Kumar by GHMC BJP floor leader, Bangari Prakash, they demanded the seizure and cancellation of trade licences of all the hotels and restaurants involved in this illegal activity.

They said that oil extracted from the carcasses of animals like cows, buffaloes, goats etc at Gaganpahad near Mylardevarapally division are supplied to hotels, who use it in the preparation of Biryani.

The residue powder of carcasses is supplied to several hotels in the GHMC limits for preparing Irani tea.
