Kozhikode: Amid reports of beef being dropped from the menu for state police trainees in Kerala, the Congress workers distributed beef curry and bread in front of the Mukkam police station in Kozhikode on Tuesday.
The distribution of beef curry and bread was initiated by Kerala Pradesh Congress Committee (KPCC) general secretary Advocate K Praveen Kumar.
"This is a clear sign of Kerala CM Pinarayi Vijayan's Sangh leanings. He met Modi immediately after taking oath as CM and by understanding with BJP he appointed Loknath Behra as Director General of Police.
Behra had given a clean chit to Modi and Amit Shah earlier in Gujarat riot case. Now Behra is implementing Sangh agendas by the admittance of Pinarayi. Congress will expose Pinarayi's double stand all over the state," Kumar told reporters here.
However, earlier this week the Kerala police department said that reports of beef being omitted from the menu prescribed for the newly trained police batch are baseless.
The clarification came after a section of media carried reports that beef is omitted from the menu.
"As per the decision of the Mess Committee which consists of trainees' representatives and police officers, they were instructed to prepare healthy meals with food available in their respective areas.
The aim is to ensure that the trainees get the energy they need through diet, " the statement issued by the police department read.
