After a story was published by Gujarat Exclusive on problems faced by outsiders residing in the city for job, education, or business, and without any cooking arrangement at home, in managing drinking water and square meals, the authorities immediately swung into action and allowed food delivery services such as Zomato and Swiggy to operate in the city after abiding the safety measures.
The move really helped several people and Gujarat Exclusive received a lot of appreciation for the same. However, there were some critics who thought these delivery services were meant for the rich only.
Albeit, the Gujarat Exclusive team found that even slum dwellers were availing the benefits of these home delivery services in the absence of local eateries amid the lockdown. The picture from the slum diagonally opposite to Prahlad Nagar Fire Station very well explains that such services are no longer limited to any particular section of the society and is availed by all.
