Animal Husbandry Minister Prabhu Chauhan on Saturday said he would continue to firmly oppose the implementation of Justice Sadashiva Commission report.

“The Constitution has already provided reservation to our (Banjara) community. I don’t know why Union Minister A Narayanaswamy is insisting on implementing the report,” Chauhan told reporters here.

“I won’t let injustice happen to Koracha, Korama and Bhovi communities on reservation. There’s BJP government at Centre and in the state. We will try to resolve the issue amicably,” the minister said.

Replying to a specific query, Chauhan said, “There is no any proposal before the state government on privatisation of vaccination drive and treatment for cattle.”

“We will ensure effective implementation of anti-cow slaughter law. We have opened a cattle helpline, first such initiative in the country. The helpline has received over 10,000 distress calls in just one month,” the minister said.
