Twitterati accuses Congress Party of publicly endorsing beef consumption through its hoarding in Kerala

Various users on social media have accused the Congress party led United Democratic Front in Kerala of hurting the religious sentiments of Hindus by publicly promoting beef consumption. According to the Twitter users, a latest hoarding put up in Kerala by the UDF, endorses beef consumption. “Are you going to kill in the name of food? In this country? In this era,” reads the controversial hoarding which also features a photograph of Congress President Rahul Gandhi along with the logo of UDF.

Some on twitter also claimed that the hoarding was actually spotted in Wayanad, the constituency from where Rahul Gandhi himself is contesting the Lok Sabha polls. However we have not been able to ascertain the exact location of the hoarding yet.

The Twitter users compared the poster in Kerala with the promises which Congress had made in Madhya Pradesh last year during the assembly elections in that state. Congress during Madhya Pradesh assembly elections had made tall promises of opening shelters for cows in every district.

Many on twitter also questioned the Congress President Rahul Gandhi, who in Northern parts of the country had been projecting himself as a devout Hindu and a brahmin.

Congress hopes to bag lion-share of minority votes by fielding Rahul Gandhi from Kerala’s Wayanad. Christians, Muslims and other non Hindu minorities make up more than 50% population of the constituency.
