ISLAMABAD - Chappar hotels in twin cities of Islamabad Rawalpindi are posing danger to the health of their customers by selling unhygienic food in dirty dishware.
Chappar hotels can be seen every area at the capital including Sector I-8, in front of Shifa International Hospital, Sector H-8, Zero point, near Marriott Hotel, Faizabad, Sector I-9, Sector I-10, Sector G-7, Sector F-10, Sector G-11, Sector F-6, Sector G-10, Faizabad, Pirwadaye and Saddar.
Despite a difference in cost of food and service charges, the situation of cleanliness at all chappar hotels is almost same. During a visit to the hotels, it was revealed that kitchens of the hotels were dirty and the water used at these hotels was not clean.
The standard of the hotels is deteriorating as authorities are not holding them accountable, said Mohsin Ali, a customer. He said crockery used to serve food to customers at the hotels was scratched and unwashed and the water was unfiltered.
He complained that utensils used to cook food were not washed properly.
Rizwan Khan, another customer, said while the quality of food at chappar hotels was deteriorating, prices were increasing. Doctor Abdul Rehman of the Shifa International said that at chappar hotels, healthy people had to take their food in dishware used by patients of communicable diseases.
He said, “We appeal to the government to upgrade chappar hotels and educate their management about cleanliness.”
Muhammad Faisal, a customer, said the hotels did not have any proper seating arrangements. Ajmal Habib said chappar hotels’ management used same dirty plates, cups and glasses again without washing them to save water and time.
