No beef on menu during CWG Games: Kalmadi

via PTI | New Delhi published on July 22, 2010

Laying all speculations to rest, the Organising Committee on Thursday clarified that beef will not be served during the Commonwealth Games scheduled to be held here from October 3-14.

“We made this decision some weeks ago and have informed our catering contractors accordingly,” said Organising Committee chairman Suresh Kalmadi in a statement.

“We are issuing this clarification since there seems to be a perception that cow meat would be served during the Games. I hope this will clear any remaining doubts,” Kalmadi added.

The issue had first arisen some months ago when former Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) president Rajnath Singh wrote to Kalmadi asking him to keep cow meat out of the menu during the Games.

The Municipal Corporation of Delhi (MCD) had also warned the organisers and passed a resolution against serving beef during the 12-day-long sporting event.

Later, the Delhi government had also clarified that beef will not be served during the Games.
