Thiruvananthapuram, Oct 27 (IANS) Kerala Chief Minister Oommen Chandy on Tuesday urged Prime Minister Narendra Modi to act against Delhi Police officers who raided the Kerala House to verify if beef was served in the premises.
In a letter to Modi, Chandy said the raid violated all norms.
“The raid was conducted without any permission or prior intimation to the Resident Commissioner (of Kerala House). The Kerala government has filed a formal complaint to the Commissioner of Delhi Police,” said Chandy.
“I would like to inform you that Kerala House serves authentic Kerala cuisine, both vegetarian and non-vegetarian. All the items in the menu are in accordance with and entirely within the confines of law,” he said.
Chandy asked Modi to instruct Home Minister Rajnath Singh to take appropriate action against the officers responsible for the police action on Monday.
Kerala House later dropped beef curry – made from buffalo meat – from its menu.
