After a protest in Karnataka, Congress leadership has warned the Animal Husbandry minister K Venkatesh to refrain from stating that the Congress government will amend the cow slaughter regulation introduced by the BJP.

The warning comes after the controversial statement by the minister, who said that the current government might revise the cow slaughter ban. The rhetorical question by the minister where he asked, “if one can slaughter buffaloes and bulls, what is wrong with slaughtering cows?” invited a large-scale protest led by the opposition party.

The General Secretary of Karnataka Congress, Randeep Surjewala, slammed the minister over his statement. Surjewala said that the minister has been asked to focus on the issues related to farmers and ensuring the right milk price is given rather than speaking on issues that are not under his purview.

While batting for cow slaughter, the minister had said that reviewing the stringent ban on cow slaughter will be in the interest of the farmers, as they have been facing a tough time maintaining aged cattle and disposing of the dead.
