 Not homemade but halwai cooked food at Dalit’s home lands BJP minister Suresh Rana in trouble

Aligarh: Another Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) minister has landed himself in a controversy. This time, it’s Suresh Rana – a cabinet member of Yogi Adityanath-led Uttar Pradesh government.

Rana was caught on camera eating food cooked by a halwai (caterer), instead of sharing a homemade meal cooked by the Dalit family.

The incident took place in Aligarh’s Lohagadh on Monday night after the minister landed up on the doorsteps of a Dalit family for a ‘surprise visit’. The visit was in line with partry’s Dalit outreach programme initiated by Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

The minister is seen enjoying his meal with the family, later footage shows him eating food pre-cooked made by halwai and not by the Dalit family. The clip has gone viral on social media.

“I didn’t even know they are coming for dinner. They came suddenly. All food, water and cutlery they had arranged from outside,” said Rajnish Kumar, Dalit man at whose house the UP Minister had dinner.

Many other BJP leaders were also filmed eating the restaurant food.

The elaborate meal spread consisted of paneer items, dal makhni, pulao, tandoori roti and gulab jamun. Mineral water bottles and water pouches were also seen on tables.

Later, villagers confirmed that the food was ordered by the minister’s team from village halwai beforehand.

Rana reportedly denied the allegations and claimed that the family was aware of his visit.
