New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday pulled up five BJP leaders whose comments on beef have embarrassed the party and told them to stop making controversial remarks.

The stern message was conveyed by Bharatiya Janata Party president Amit Shah in separate meetings he held at the party office here with the five, including Haryana Chief Minister ML Khattar.

Others who faced Modi’s wrath were ministers Mahesh Sharma and Sanjeev Baliyan, MP Sakshi Maharaj and Uttar Pradesh legislator Sangeet Som.

According to informed sources, Shah told them all that Modi was “upset” with the kind of remarks they have made related to beef consumption in the wake of last month’s murder of a Muslim man in Uttar Pradesh.

The man, Mohammad Akhlaq, 50, was dragged out of his house in Dadri area near Delhi and lynched by a mob following rumours that he killed a cow and ate beef. His son was also seriously injured.

As the killing ignited widespread condemnation, some BJP leaders made comments that appeared to justify the gory murder.

After meeting Shah, Som merely told reporters: “We were called by the BJP president and discussions were held on party matters.”

Haryana Chief Minister Khattar stoked more embarrassment by telling a newspaper that Muslims had to give up eating beef if they wanted to be in India.

After all round criticism, Khattar expressed qualified regrets.

The hardline views over beef and Muslims have come at a time when Modi has been trying to woo voters in the ongoing Bihar assembly elections on a platform of development and oneness.

The recent controversy created by the AAP’s (Aam Aadmi Party) elected MLA has shaken the whole of the administrative department. The body representing bureaucrats has come up in full force to protest against the atrocities done by AAP members.

One of the two legislators who had allegedly attacked Delhi Chief Secretary Anshu Prakash, Amanatullah Khan yesterday surrendered at Jamia Nagar police station.

Anshu Prakash alleged that he was bundled up by the AAP’s goon inside the Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal’s residence on the pretext of some kind of meeting.

Police have apprehended the second AAP MLA Prakash Jarwal on Tuesday night itself.

The assault of the government official has created a furore among fellow colleges and they have demanded an unconditional apology from Arvind Kejriwal.

Anshu Prakash alleged that he was bundled up by the AAP's goons inside the Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal's residence on the pretext of some kind of meeting.
Anshu Prakash alleged that he was bundled up by the AAP’s goons inside the Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal’s residence on the pretext of some kind of meeting.

The crisis has led Home Minister, Rajnath Singh to intervene in this matter and hence a report is sought from Lieutenant Governor Anil Baijal on the same.

The AAP is trying to paint the whole scenario in some other way by calling it a nefarious design by BJP (Bhartiya Janta Party). But it is quite evident from the facts that AAP is trying to hide its heinous face by blaming BJP for all this fiasco.

Police have confirmed the assault on Chief Secretary Anshu Prakash. Thus, it leaves us in no doubt that AAP party members have got the thirst for power in their head and they are claiming themselves above the law and order. It is the same government which promised the Delhi people to revolutionize the whole system but the current developments are pointing the needle towards raw craving for power and money by the Arvind Kejriwal led government.
