In a Facebook post, CPI(M) leader and Palakkad MP MB Rajesh has alleged that there is an unofficial beef ban in Thrissur Kerala Police Academy.  

“Beef has been removed from the menu for the past one-and-a-half years. This is clear in purchase register. This was implemented since the RSS campaigns against beef got strengthened,” the MP said in his Facebook post.

He also alleged that state Home Ministry has failed to halt the Sangh Parivar’s agenda.

The Timesof India reports that the beef ban first took shape one-and-a-half years ago, when IG Suresh Raj Purohit was appointed at the academy.

However Home Minister Ramesh Chennithala denied allegations and said that the home minister or the government had no role in deciding the menu at the academy. It is the mess committee that takes the decision, he said.

As per the TOI report the academy officials also denied the charges. The mess committee, which comprises a circle inspector, a sub inspector, a havildar and a trainee, decides the menu on weekly and monthly basis.
