Beef will not be served during CWG: Kalmadi

Suresh-KalmadiNew Delhi, July 22 : The Commonwealth Games Organising Committee Thursday said that beef will not be served during the mega sporting event to be held in the capital Oct 3-14.

"We made this decision (not to serve beef) some weeks ago and have informed our catering contractors accordingly," said Suresh Kalmadi, chairman of the Games organising committee.

"There seems to be a perception that cow's meat will be served during the Games. I hope this clarification will clear all doubts," he said.

Some organisations had raised concerns that beef would be served during the Games. (IANS)
