Kerala government today asserted that there was no beef being served at Kerala House here and lodged a complaint with Delhi Police over the unauthorised entry of some activists into the state-run guest house even as buffalo meat was removed from the menu.
Briefing reporters at Kerala House in Delhi, Kerala Chief Secretary Jiji Thomson dismissed claims that beef was served in the canteen there.
“No. I totally deny it. We have never done it. What they have done is they have given buffalo meat and that is what they term as beef. No cow meat was served,” he said.
He said a complaint has been lodged with Delhi Police over the entry of some activists into Kerala House without taking permission from the Resident Commissioner.
“Yesterday, we were told that some activists have entered without the permission of the Resident Commissioner. We have taken objection to that. We have lodged a complaint with the DCP (of Delhi Police),” he said.
