New Delhi/Nagpur: Yoga guru Baba Ramdev has hit back at BJP MP and Dalit leader Udit Raj who had said that Usain Bolt won nine gold medals as he ate beef.
“It should be clear to everyone that power to be a real champion comes from having cow’s ghee not by having beef,” Ramdev tweeted.
Raj had raised a few eyebrows on Monday with a tweet which suggested that champion Jamaican athlete Bolt went on to win nine Olympics gold despite being born in poverty after his trainer advised him to eat beef twice a day.
“Usain Bolt of Jamaica was poor and trainer advised him to eat beef both the times and he scored 9 gold medals in Olympics,” the Lok Sabha member from North West Delhi tweeted.
Beef is an emotive issue for the BJP whose governments in various states have come out with tough law banning its trade.
