New Delhi: The state guest house of Kerala in Delhi removed beef curry from its menu today after a group of Hindu Sena leaders lodged a police complaint against it. Meanwhile, Chief Minister of Delhi Arvind Kejriwal condemned Delhi Police’s actions.

Cow meat is banned by law in Delhi & NCR (National Capital Region).

A team of 20 police officials visited the state’s guest house on Monday evening to verify if its canteen was serving beef after a caller identified as Vishnu Gupta, a Hindu Sena leader, complained that beef was being served in the Kerala House canteen.

“The call was received by the police control room around 4.15 PM, and the caller, claiming to be from a fringe right-wing group, told the Police that beef was being served at Kerala House,” said New Delhi Deputy Commissioner of Police, Jatin Narwal.

Keeping in mind the beef-related untoward incidents that have been taking place across the country over the last few weeks, a police team went to Kerala House to verify facts, Narwal said.

The team remained deployed at the venue for several hours.

The Kerala House said that it served only buffalo meat at its canteen and called it “beef”, but has decided to take the dish off its menu.

Meanwhile, Chief Minister of Delhi Arvind Kejriwal condemned Delhi Police’s action at the Kerala House, alleging that it was an attack on the federal structure.

Muslims, You have ruled over Delhi. It is time to Reclaim it: Kejriwal Injects Communal poison for Bawana bypoll

New Delhi, Aug 21, 2017: Aam Admi Party leaves no stone unturned to turn the competition in their favour. From targeting youth to women and the common man, they have now changed their focus to the Muslim community in Delhi. Recently, AAP’s sensational move stirred the social media.

A pamphlet asking Muslim residents in Bawana assembly constituency of Delhi to vote for Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) in the upcoming Bawana bypoll was shared in the social media. The pamphlet professed an appeal to Muslim brothers by a Muslim cabinet minister of AAP, Imran Hussain.

The pamphlet desecrated the vote in the Uttar Pradesh assembly election, indicating the readers that their wrong choice of the vote could worsen the state of affairs in the vicinity. It said that Muslims can’t be swayed if they join hands and vote together.

The message out rightly professed Islamic ideologue, rather more brazenly. With statements like, “Our ancestors (Mughals) have ruled India for a thousand years and that Delhi belongs to Muslims”, nothing more is lucid than the communal propaganda of Kejriwal. What pride should one take in the fact that our land was once ruled by non-natives for several centuries?.

It also vouched for the pamphlet to be disseminated across Muslim shrines (Dargah) and every Muslim hook and corner.

The shameless vouching for votes does not even end here; it also demeaned others in the competition by calling them their enemies. Does this mean every Non-Muslim party is an ‘enemy’? Messages like will do nothing good than arousing animosity among the diverse sects.

The blatantly and flagrantly communal pitch of the pamphlet is noticeably an infringement of Supreme Court order that bans drum up support for votes in the name of any community. The order calls for disqualification of the candidate owing to such appeal.

Tajinder Bagga, a Delhi BJP spokesperson solicited a case to be registered against AAP supremo and Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal for dispensing such communal appeal.

Munish Raizada, former NRI AAP convener also expressed his views regarding the poster;

Imam, the voice in the poster, however, denied the claims made. He has called the poster ‘fake’ and demanded police action for the same.

Off late, Arvind Kejriwal was also seen making intimidating remarks while talking to the voters in the by-election that AAP will not work under BJP/Congress leadership.

The party which maintained the common man status in its initial stage is now a party full of goons. What obvious assertion does one need? Isn’t the poster pitching for communal stance enough to prove that in the so-called Aam Admi Party, nothing is Aam (common) except for one thing and that is double-dealing.

Barring the Benalium constituency in South Goa, where AAP’s Royla Fernandes emerged second, losing to Nationalist Congress Party’s Churchill Alemao by a margin of 5,191 seats, the party has not been able to corner a first runner-up position in any of the 20 seats whose results have been declared till around 2 p.m.

Speaking to reporters, Gomes said, that peoples’ will needed to be respected and that the party did not have much time to prepare for the February 4 assembly polls.

New Delhi, Dec 19, 2016: While Aam Aadmi Party is surrounded by numerous criticism regarding not making donations public, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Saturday demanded setting up of a commission to investigate and examine the source of funding of political parties.

He also questioned that why central government has taken a decision to exempt political parties from paying income tax while depositing old 500 and 1,000 rupee notes, post PM Modi’s demonetisation move.

Further, Kejriwal sought to link the Centre’s tax exemption decision to the meeting between Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi and Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Friday, suggesting that the announcement was the result of the meeting between the two, mentioned PTI.

At a press conference Kejriwal said, “common people are being investigated if they deposit Rs 2.5 lakh individually. But if political parties are not going to be investigated even if they deposit Rs. 2,500 crore following the decision, then it is wrong.”

“We demand setting up of an independent commission to probe into bank account details of political parties over the past five years, to investigate into their sources of funding,” mentioned PTI.

When a part of the common people are doubting AAP’s policy and agenda, Kejriwal asks the Central Government to make public details of money deposited by all political parties post-demonetisation and sought removal of the “less than Rs. 20,000 donation cap” for tax exemption, saying “each paisa the parties receive should be declared”.

“The income tax returns filed by AAP right from its formation until now are being enquired into. We are presenting each of the receipts and vouchers to the income tax department. We are not scared, what are the other parties like BJP scared of? Why shouldn’t they be probed?” he further asked.
