“You want to eat beef, then eat. Why a festival?” Vice President M Venkaiah Naidu said on Monday, ANI reported.
The Vice President was speaking in Mumbai at the RA Podar College of Commerce and Economics. “Similarly, a Kiss Festival, if you wish to kiss why do you need a festival or anyone’s permission for it,” Naidu said.
Naidu has earlier commented on food choices being personal. In April 2017, before he became Vice President, he had said, “Food is a personal choice, but at the same time there are certain restrictions in the Constitution.”
