Condemning the row over serving beef in Kerala House, Viswa Hindu Parishad (VHP) today said Sangh Parivar organisations were not against making beef a part of the menu in Kerala government guest houses or hotels across the state.
A day after the alleged Delhi police raid at Kerala House over serving beef snowballed into a controversy, Kerala unit president of the VHP, S J R Kumar accused organisations like Hindu Sena and Rama Sena of trying to tarnish the image of Narendra Modi government by enforcing their dictum on the people on various issues including their food habits.
“We are not against serving beef in Kerala House. We have not created any row over serving beef in hotels in Kerala or state government guest houses including New Delhi’s Kerala House,” Kumar told PTI here, when asked about VHP’s comment on the Kerala government’s decision to put the popular buffalo meat dish back on the menu of the Kerala House from today.
Kumar said Kerala House beef episode is the handiwork of organisations like Hindu Sena, which is not part of Sangh Parivar.
“We don’t know anything about them. Their aim was to tarnish the image of Modi government which has earned global reputation for the good works being carried out in the country.
