However, do note that this reduction of price would not be applicable in hotels, but for the candidates who have to spend a huge amount of money supplying food for party workers during the elections.

The proposal was made by Telangana's chief electoral officer, Rajat Kumar to political parties. If this does go through, then the cost of mutton biriyani would be reduced from Rs 170 to 140. Chicken biriyani would cost Rs 120 per plate instead of Rs 140.

This is a proposal made to bring down the expenditure borne by the candidates. The money spent on food is accounted for by the EC.
