Keep beef out of Games menu, demands Delhi BJP
New Delhi: Delhi BJP on Tuesday strongly
demanded keeping beef out of the menu of the October 3-14
Commonwealth Games in the national capital.
Adopted a resolution asking the Organising Committee
of the mega sporting event not serve beef to sportspersons and
other participants, the working committee of Delhi BJP said
serving it would hurt religious sentiments.
Earlier, former BJP chief Rajnath Singh had requested
the Delhi administration and Commonwealth Games organising
committee to keep beef out of the menu of the event.
The BJP leader had made the request through letters to
Delhi Lieutenant Governor Tejinder Khanna and Chairman,
Organising Committee, Commonwealth Games, Suresh Kalmadi.
BJP-ruled MCD had also adopted a resolution to keep
beef out of the menu.
Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit had refused to comment
on the issue but only said that sportspersons would be
provided with high-calorie food.
The working committee meeting, presided over by Delhi
BJP chief O P Kohli, also condoled the death of former West
Bengal Chief Minister Jyoti Basu.
