KJ Alphons Takes Charge Of Tourism Ministry

"So Mr Kannanthanam's appointment as union minister of State for tourism and IT with independent charges does not come as a surprise to many".

Exposing the double standard of the Bhartiya Janata Party (BJP) on beef consumption yet again, the newly appointed Tourism Minister of the country Alphonse Kannanthanam said people in Kerala can eat beef and his party will not have a problem.

In July, amid debate over beef-ban, Goa CM Parrikar said in the Assembly that he would ensure that there was no shortage of beef in Goa and, if required, it would be imported from neighbouring states. "I wish him good luck to also be the voice of Kerala in the cabinet".

"The joint effort by the Centre and state would make the path for the development easier. I hope next time when these statistics are issued, Alphons would have bettered this", Sharma added.

Alphons is only six years old in the BJP, which he joined in 2011.

Bureaucrat-turned-politician K.J. Alphons, who on Monday took office as Tourism Minister, said he had no inkling he was being made a central minister till he got a telephone call from the Prime Minister's Office (PMO). Kannanthanam joined BJP, after being fed up with the corrupt rule of the two political fronts of the state.

By showing the party as being open, even if selectively, to people's choice of what they wish to eat and letting ministers assert this in media interactions, could the BJP be eyeing an image-makeover that will ultimately make it more acceptable in areas where it now is seen as a political pariah? "It is sure that he would give wings to the developmental dreams of the state", Kummanam said. "The PM has done a fantastic job in taking everyone along", he said.

Alphons asserted that the BJP had no plans to impose a "food emergency" in any of the States including Kerala. "No one in the state BJP seems happy about the cabinet berth. Similarly, it will be consumed in Kerala", he said.

While talking to news agency PTI, Kannanthanam said, "The BJP does not mandate that beef can not be eaten".
