'Beef fry' to be back on Delhi's Kerala House menu from tomorrow

Friends of Modi, please do something to get him to bring sanity to the mayhem in India. He may face a lot of humility if he does not get his act together. No idea what it takes for him to speak up and straighten things... more of this is happening every day.  I found this cartoon apt to go with this story.

Some of you may be relishing it, but at the end all of us will regret.

A few, just a few of his party men are terrorizing the whole nation in his name. Investments will get pulled out, fascism will rise, economy will tank, safety issues become difficult to manage leading to his fall. Remember Indira Gandhi? Modi is walking her path now.

'Beef fry' to be back on Delhi's Kerala House menu from tomorrow

'Beef fry' to be back on Delhi's Kerala House menu from tomorrow
NEW DELHI: 'Beef fry' will be back on the Kerala House menu from tomorrow after it was taken off the menu today following a raid by the Delhi Police. The state guesthouse had temporarily taken buffalo meat off the canteen menu, but dismissed allegations that beef curry was served at its premises, saying that only buffalo meat was offered.

A PCR call by a person claiming to belong to a fringe right-wing group Hindu Sena on Monday complaining that beef was being served at Kerala House's canteen had seen Delhi Police personnel rush to the premises.

An upset Kerala chief minister Oommen Chandy accused the Delhi Police of carrying out "searches" at New Delhi's Kerala House over an allegation of beef being served there and termed the matter "unfortunate".

The Kerala chief minister wrote a letter to PM saying, "I seek the personal intervention of Prime Minister to instruct the Union home minister for taking stringent action against those responsible for trespassing into the premises of the state govt property and ensure that this kind of incidents does not occur again."

A call by a person claiming to belong to a fringe right-wing group in the afternoon on Monday complaining that beef was being served at Kerala House's canteen had seen Delhi Police personnel rush to the state-run guest house in the national capital.

Reacting to the episode, the Kerala chief minister said some people were unnecessarily creating a row over the beef ban.

"Kerala House is not a private hotel or an institution run for making profit. It is an official guest house of the state government. The police action was really unfortunate. They should have shown some restraint before carrying out searches," Chandy said.

"The raid was conducted without any permission or prior intimation to the resident commissioner (of Kerala House). The Kerala government has filed a formal complaint to the Commissioner of Delhi Police," he said.

"I would like to inform you that Kerala House serves authentic Kerala cuisine, both vegetarian and non-vegetarian. All the items in the menu are in accordance with and entirely within the confines of law," he added.

Kerala home minister Ramesh Chennithala echoed Chandy, saying the incident amounted to an infringement of the powers of the state. Kerala government would soon send a letter to the lieutenant governor of Delhi expressing the state's strong protest over the issue, he added.

Meanwhile, strong reactions to the episode poured in from opposition parties as well in Kerala with former defence minister and senior Congress leader AK Antony saying, "It is the individual's freedom to decide what to eat and wear, and that freedom should not be infringed upon."

CPI(M), too, condemned the police action with party Politburo member Pinarayi Vijayan alleging that the searches at the state-run guest house was part of a Sangh Parivar agenda.

"The same forces who killed Mohd Iqlakh in Dadri are behind the raid at Kerala House also. The raid at state-run guest house is a warning that they will barge into any kitchen in the country," he said in a Facebook post.

"There is neither any ban on beef in Delhi nor any restriction to cook or sell it at Kerala House. The Delhi Police's illegal action, according to communal forces, is part of the Sangh Parivar agenda," he added.
