A 23-year-old man named Anup Ojha eats 40 rotis and 10 plates of rice at Manjhwari quarantine centre in Bihar’s Buxar.
Ojha’s unusual diet led to a shortage of grains and other food supplies at the quarantine centre, reports a news portal.
Block Development Officer (BDO) AK Singh told the portal, “We were informed that a Bihar delicacy ‘litti’ (a dough ball made of wheat flour and stuffed with roasted chickpea) was prepared for the migrants staying in the quarantine centre, Ojha ate 85 littis that day. The cook, who prepares roti, is now tired of preparing so many chapatis for one particular individual. So, we decided to get a first-hand account of this person and his diet,”
“Ojha’s quarantine period is about to end. We have instructed the cook that he should not be deprived of food. Nor there should be any slash in his diet. Let him have whatever he wants,” the officials have directed the manager of the quarantine facility.
Anup Ojha who had returned from Rajasthan has been quarantined at Manjhwari quarantine centre in Buxar.
