Shut down illegal abattoirs, KSE urges CM

Shut down illegal abattoirs, KSE urges CM
Senior BJP leader K S Eshwarappa on Monday said that Anti-Cow Slaughter Act would be implemented in the state, if the BJP is voted to power in the next Assembly elections.

Speaking to journalists here, Eshwarappa demanded that the Siddaramaiah-led Congress government close down all illegal slaughter houses in the state without any second thought.

Referring to chief minister’s statement that he would not ban slaughter houses in Karnataka as was being done in the BJP-ruled Uttar Pradesh, Eshwarappa said that Siddaramaiah must tender an apology to the people of the state for hurting their religious sentiments. It is an open secret that all non-vegetarians are not beef eaters and, a large number of people worship cow. When this is the reality, Siddaramaiah’s statement makes no sense, said Eshwarappa, who is also the leader of the Opposition in the Legislative Council.

To a query, he admitted that there are differences within the BJP and it is quite common. “They would be resolved either by ourselves or by our senior leaders.” Asked about the incident pertaining to the removal banners containing pictures of BJP leader and former MP Ayanur Manjunath in Shivamogga city, Eshwarappa said he would discuss the issue with the local leaders.
