Bhubaneswar, October 8 (Odisha.in) Irked over the seizer of 24 tonnes of beef near Jagatpur in Cuttack within two days since Sunday, Bajrang Dal on Monday took a critical note of the situation and announced to launch a campaign against cow slaughtering from Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik’s constituency in Hinjilikatu of Ganjam.
Due to the apathetic attitude of the State Government, illegal beef trading is reaching at all time high in the state, Bajarang Dal national co-convener Subash Chouhan told Odisha.in.
“We have decided to launch a massive campaign from Chief Minister’s constituency against cow slaughtering” he said.
He has also threatened ‘militant action’ to enforce a ban on the slaughter and transportation of beef in the State, if the Government does not take steps to control such heinous activities.
The state government has ignored several representations asking for a ban on the killing of cows and calves and transportation but nothing has happened so far while illegal beef trading are on all time high, he alleged.
“How can we allow cow slaughter” asked Chouhan adding that police have been seen as a mute spectator over the issue. People For Animal chief and BJP MP Maneka Gandhi had also apprised the Chief Minister Patnaik over the issue but the state government has not taken enough steps to enforce the ban.
