'Biryani spices reducing male sex drive': TMC leader forces shops to shut down in Bengal
Trinamool Congress leader Rabindra Nath Ghosh forced two local Biryani shops in Bengal's Cooch Behar to shut down, alleging that spices in the dish resulted in reduced male virility.
Rabindra Nath Ghosh, a former minister in the Mamata Banerjee-led government, said that there have been allegations from several people that the ingredients and spices used to make Biryani reduced male sex drive.
"For the past several days there have been complaints from the people of the area that they don't know which spices are being used to make Biryani that are deterrents to the sexual drive of a man," Ghosh said.
The current chairman of Cooch Behar municipality further alleged that people from states like Bihar and Uttar Pradesh were selling Biryani in the area and the shops operated without a license.
"After all the complaints, we came here and found that the shops did not have a trade license. So the shops were closed," he said.
