Mumbai Mayor Kishori Pednekar, on Thursday, inaugurated Rs 10 meal at BMC canteen. But the interesting part is that the canteen already had Rs 10 lunch on their menu card for years. After assuring Rs 10 meal in the Shiv Sena manifesto of the recently concluded Maharashtra Assembly Elections, the state government hasn't formally launched it.
