Mumbai: A day after activists of Raj Thackeray led-MNS targeted `Pani and Bhelpuri` vendors here
for dishing out unhygienic fare, the party on Friday decided to give written complaints to all BMC ward officers seeking strict action against them.

"We are going to give written complaints to all the ward officers against the street vendors for selling unhygienic
food to people," MNS leader from South Mumbai Arvind Gawade said.

The ward officers should take action against these food vendors, as they are illegal and the food served by them poses a grave threat to the health of the people, Gawade said.

The trouble began after a young girl caught on camera a `pani puri` vendor urinating into the pot used to serve the
snacks following which MNS workers went on a rampage yesterday in few parts of the city throwing out food from
their stalls.

"The vendors on the streets are playing with the health of the people and we would continue our protest until the
civic body takes strict action against them," MNS leader Sandeep Deshpande said.
