Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) MP and Dalit Leader Udit Raj has created a controversy after his tweet suggested that Usain Bolt won his nine gold medals in Olympics because of eating beef twice a day. He later clarified that he was just reproducing Bolt’s trainer’s statement.

Ever since Usain Bolt burst onto the scene at the 2008 Beijing Olympics by setting three world records, the whole world has been trying to find the secret behind the Jamaican’s success. After 8 years, a Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) MP seemed to have found the answer for it.

BJP MP Udit Raj tweeted yesterday that ‘the Fastest man on Earth’ was poor and the trainer advised him to eat beef twice a day. According to the MP, the ‘beef power’ helped Bolt win nine gold medals in Olympics.

As always, the controversial tweet went viral and with beef a sensitive issue for the BJP, the MP quickly clarified his statement by saying he was just reproducing Bolt’s trainer’s statement and was not advocating people to eat beef.

"My remark is in context of allegations that athletes don't have enough facilities," Raj was quoted as saying by News18.
