Mysuru, December 5:- Indian New Congress condemned the statement by Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader K S Eshwarappa who went on record that the party would not step back from constructing Ram Mandir at Ayodhya even if Prime Minister Narendra Modi is opposed to it.
National president of INC Ayub Khan took a dig at the BJP and alleged that the saffron party is giving false assurances on constructing Ram Mandir and making it a vote bank during the elections.
“Cow slaughtering is taking place continuously under BJP governance. More than 20,000 metric tonnes of beef has been exported from India. Let Lok Sabha member Pratap Simha disclose how many exporters were given permission to export beef to foreign countries. Wastes are being brought from Kerala and other states and dumped in Mysuru and Kodagu Districts. It should be stopped immediately,” he urged.
Syed Amanulla and N R Raghu were present. (MR/KMR)
