Latching on to the RJD supremo Lalu Prasad’s controversial remarks that the ‘Hindus too eat beef’, senior BJP leader Sushil Kumar Modi on Monday promised to frame a legislation to ban cow slaughter in the state if NDA comes to power in Bihar Assembly elections.

“The forthcoming Assembly polls in Bihar is going to be a direct contest between those who justify beef eating and those seeking effective ban on cow slaughter….we, on our part, promise to frame an effective legislation to totally ban cow slaughter in the state if the NDA comes to power,” he said in a statement.

Such a stringent law banning cow slaughter in Bihar would be framed in line of legislations in place in states like Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh, Chhatisgarh and Gujarat among others, Sushil Modi said, adding that though Bihar had a law banning slaughter of cows below 14 years of age, the same had not been effectively implemented by successive governments.

In Bihar, cows of tender age were being slaughtered despite having legislation against it, he claimed, adding that the NDA government would prevent cow slaughter and take steps for protection of the sacred animal in order to ensure that those rearing cows become prosperous.

The senior BJP leader claimed that thousands of animals used to be brought to Sonepur fair by trains from across the country and transported to Assam and other North-East states before being transported across the border for slaughter, which Sushil Modi said, he had banned when he was a minister.

The NDA government at the Centre has also saved lives of lakhs of cows by preventing smuggling of animals to neighbouring country, the former deputy chief minister said.

He expressed dismay at the RJD supremo sticking to his remarks that the ‘Hindus too eat beef’ and questioned Chief Minister Nitish Kumar and the Congress chief Sonia Gandhi’s stony silence on Prasad’s controversial remarks.

In an apparent bid to drag the chief minister in the raging controversy over the RJD supremo’s remarks, the senior BJP leader claimed that Kumar had insulted crores of Hindus by keeping mum on the issue.

      Some people for whom pork is forbidden do eat it just as some for whom beef is forbidden eat it. That's a fact.

        BJP is some how trying to polarize Hindu votes as they did in UP by encashing on Moradabad riot projecting as Savior of Hindus. But they are exposed now.Bihar's voters will not give any weightage to this tactics. One thing is sure that they will not get a single Muslim vote inspite of rhetoric of sabaka sath sabaka vikas.Their Ally's RSS,VHP,Bajrang Deal etc. have left no doubt in the mind of Muslim voters. Moreover younger voters are doubtful on their vikas agenda. Some of the TV anchors and so called neutral journalists are on their job to project landslide victory to them. Similar thing they did during Delhi election. Their rhetoric of jungle raj can be compared with naxalite,dharne baj to AAP.Prices of essential items are soaring high but they are happy by telling reduction in CPI & WPI.But these indexes are not comprehendible to common people. Reduction in interest rate affect senior citizen when there is no social security system except forfew gogovernment pensioners. Worth of Atal pension yojana of Rs.500.00pm after 40 years will be not more than Rs.300.00pm.BJP in opposition were against all FDI and after coming to power their total growth story is based on only FDI for which our PM is globe trotting.

          Please correct Atal Pension Yojana as Rs.5000.00pm not Rs.500.00pm.

            Let people make their choices on food, let Hindus not sell their cows once they have stopped giving milk, let those Hindus who are against killing the Mother cow show that they are willing and able to pay for the upkeep of their Gow Mata. The Muslims are actually doing a big service by eating beef, otherwise the cows would be all over the roads abandoned like the widows of Mathura and Haridwar.
