Amid a crackdown by Uttar Pradesh’s new Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath on cow slaughter in the state, two illegal slaughter houses were shut down within a week of BJP coming to power. Then, came a report that said that number of cow smuggling cases have dropped down since Haryana government implemented a law for protection and conservation of cows in 2015.
The Head of the Cow Protection Task Force (CPTF) Bharti Arora wrote a letter to Director General of Police KP Singh and Chairman of the Haryana Gau Seva Aayog Bhani Ram Mangla earlier this month. This came after the government was to file a reply to a civil write petition in Punjab and Haryana High Court on the issue of cow slaughter and protection.
The Manohar Lal Khattar-led BJP government in Haryana had set up a special team to monitor cow vigilantism. Gauvansh Sanrakshan and Gausamvardhan Act was implemented in 2015, the CPTF was formed in July 2016. If the figures are to be believed, the number of cases that were registered in 2015 have dropped to 475 as compared to the 619 cases in 2013. While 4,418 cows were rescued and 1,138 accused were arrested in 2013, only 437 people were arrested for cow smuggling in 2016.
While the numbers showed change, but is this true? Well, we stumbled upon an old video of a lawyer named Renuka Chopra. In the video, she has exposed the BJP government’s cow nexus and revealed how the party’s Gau Rakshaks are working. The video which appears to be of last month, showed that Chopra had all the proofs to show that Khattar-led Haryana government is doing nothing in the name of cow protection, and how cows are still being smuggled to Uttar Pradesh.
She also alleged that the slaughter houses have their own rates and preferences as far as the quality of the cow is concerned as the leather of white cow yields much more cost any other in the foreign market.
Watch what she said and we bet you will be shocked –
What do you think?
