Warning all the self-proclaimed ‘Gau Rakshaks’, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday once again called for taking stern actions against people spreading violence in the name of cow protection.
Prime Minister Modi during all party meet in the capital asked the states governments across the nation to talk tough against the cow vigilantes engaging in unlawful activity.
Asking people to not give any political colour to such incidents, PM Modi said, “Each state should act against such violence”.
Earlier, PM Modi last month while condemning the attacks said that that “killing in the name of cow worship is not acceptable”.
“No person in this nation has the right to take the law in his or her own hands in this country. Killing people in the name of Gau Bhakti is not acceptable. This is not something Mahatma Gandhi would approve of,” said PM Modi during Ahmedabad visit.
Speaking further, PM Modi appealed all the parties to ensure a successful monsoon session knowing that the opposition will look forward to targeting BJP government in the parliament.
He also thanked all the parties for showing their support and successful launch of Goods and Service Tax (GST) on July 1.
Meanwhile, the Congress on Sunday said it would seek answers from the government over an ongoing border stand-off with China, the worsening situation in Kashmir and mob lynching incidents in the name of the cow.
“We will raise the issues related to mob lynching, the agrarian crisis in view of farmer suicides,” said Congress.
Speaking to the media, Leader of Opposition in the Rajya Sabha, Ghulam Nabi Azad, said that situation on the border with China in the Sikkim sector is very tense even as he blamed Beijing for the boundary stand-off.
“This situation has been created by China. It is a matter of country’s security and we will raise it in Parliament,” he said.
The Monsoon Session of Parliament is to be held from July 17, 2017 to August 11, 2017.
