The move, according to Zomato, was in compliance with government directives, coinciding with the Pran Pratishtha ceremony at Ayodhya’s Ram Temple. Learn more about this controversial decision and the ensuing public discourse.

Zomato took to social media platform X (formerly Twitter) to address the situation, emphasizing that the temporary suspension was a result of adhering to government orders. This decision drew attention when a customer from Bhopal, known as @Biryani_ on X, expressed frustration over the unavailability of chicken items and humorously speculated about the reasons behind it.

In response to the customer’s post, Zomato clarified their position, stating, “Hi, we have disabled delivery of non-veg items in Uttar Pradesh, Assam, Chattisgarh, Madhya Pradesh, and Rajasthan as per government notice. Hope this clarification helps!”

Despite the clarification, Zomato faced criticism from users on the X platform, with some pointing out the inconsistency in their competitors’ services and accusing Zomato of aligning with a specific ideology. The controversy prompted discussions on individual freedom and the right to choose what one consumes, with some users threatening legal action against Zomato.
