Ahead of polls, Karnataka BJP organises 'Gaw Raksha Asthayama Yagna' in Bangalore


In a poll bound Karnataka , Cow welfare Cell of state’s BJP unit organised a 24 hours  ‘Gaw Raksha Asthayama Yagna’ to create awareness about cow slaughter and illegal slaughter house's in Bengaluru on Friday.

The rituals of the yagna started in the afternoon at Ganesha Devasthana grounds in JP Nagar.

Siddharth Goenka, convenor State Cow Welfare Cell said ,"More than 200 illegal slaughter house's are functioning in Bengaluru.”

“Blood that exudates from these illegal slaughter houses contaminate water bodies. Through this yagna we are creating awareness among common man,” added Goenka.

However, Congress terms the yagna as election gimmick and BJP’s attempt to woo Hindu voters.

"I am happy they are doing yagna for cow but they should do yagna also for poor and unemployed people,” said Rizwan Arshad, a Congress leader.

He added, “Elections are near, so they want to divert the attention of people from the failure of Modi government and promises made by the BJP.”

However, BJP has denied the allegations of Congress and says, “This is the routine work of Cow Welfare cell.”
