Kerala BJP chief dares Left to hold beef fests in Delhi
Stepping up his attack on the ruling CPI(M) in Kerala for organising beef festivals, state BJP chief Kummanam Rajasekharan on Tuesday dared the Left leadership to hold such events in New Delhi to protest the Centre's ban on sale of cattle for slaughter.
"I wish to ask Sitaram Yechury and Prakash Karat...Do you have the courage to organise beef fests publicly in front of AKG Bhavan in New Delhi? Why are you not doing it there," he said here.
"Such things can only happen in Kerala," Rajasekharan told a meeting organised by the National Democratic Alliance (NDA) to protest the "anti-people" policies of the CPI(M)-led Left Democratic Front (LDF) government in Kerala, which completed a year in office this month. Beef fests were held in various parts of Kerala to protest the ban on sale and purchase of cattle at animal markets for slaughter.
