Those Who Kill Cows "Will Be Hanged", Says Chhattisgarh CM

Raman Singh

On April 1, Chhattisgarh Chief Minister Raman Singh said that those involved in killing cows in his state "will be hanged." This statement was made a day after Gujarat adopted the toughest law against cow slaughter on March 31.

When asked by reporters whether the state government was considering any tough legislation to check cow slaughter, Singh counter-questioned saying, "Is cow slaughter happening anywhere in the state? Have any cows been killed in our state in the last 15 years?" Singh then said, "Jo gai ko marega, unko latka denge."

Rejecting Singh's claim, State Congress General Secretary Shailesh Nitin Trivedi said, “Cow slaughter is rampant even in places close to the state capital, but no effective action seems to have been taken.” Trivedi further added, “Even those associated with the ruling party are involved in the transportation of agriculture cattle for slaughter. The talk about hanging those who kill cows is just an attempt by the Chief Minister to go with the flow of BJP."
