BJP leader Sandeep Wachaspati had yesterday asked AA Rahim if he would serve pork. ” Some people have doubts about what food will be on Food Street. Answer In Kerala, all the food eaten by Malayalees is available. Food is human freedom. Every person has the right to eat what he likes and not to eat what he does not like. This country will not care if you say you should not eat what we do not like and you should only eat what we like ” – DYFI Netal S Satish wrote on Facebook.
