'Meat samajh ke kha ja', Vegetarian man from UP introduces his friends to Paneer

03, Apr 2017 By Sandeep Kadian

Lucknow: Ever since Yogi Adityanath government decided to clamp down on all the illegal slaughterhouses in the state, there has been a severe shortage of meat in Uttar Pradesh. In the absence of meat, many non-vegetarians are left craving for their favorite delicacies. In such trying times, a local man Lalit has decided to help his meat loving friends by introducing them to Paneer.

Lalit is taking his friends out to eat and persuading them to eat Paneer by telling them that it tastes just like their favorite non-vegetarian delicacy. Even though most of his friends remain skeptical, Lalit has managed to convince 3 of his friends to eat Paneer till meat becomes easily available in the market again.

Speaking to Faking News, Lalit said ,”For the past many years, all these guys were telling me that meat tastes just like Paneer and I should definitely try it. I resisted the temptation all this while and stuck to my Paneer but I remembered their words, Paneer tastes just like meat. So now when there is a shortage of meat in the market after the crackdown on illegal slaughterhouses, I am telling them what they always told me. Offering Paneer is the least I can do to help them during these difficult times.”

“It hasn’t been easy, some of them thought I was just cracking a joke while some others preferred to fast during Navratris instead of accepting my Paneer proposal. However, I did manage to convince a couple to try Paneer and they did find it tasty. Hopefully I will convert a few more by the time the meat shortage is over”, Lalit added.

Meanwhile, several meat sellers have requested Yogi Adityanath to relax the norms soon before Paneer replaces meat in the dinner plates all over the state.
