Karnataka Animal Husbandry Minister Prabhu Chavan on Tuesday mentioned that the anti-cow slaughter invoice will likely be launched through the winter session of the state legislature ranging from December 7. “It has been a desire to implement anti-cow slaughter law in Karnataka since I took over the responsibility of this ministry and the time for it has come now,” Chavan mentioned in a launch.
Stating that he has held discussions with the Chief Minister BS Yediyurappa on this, the Minister mentioned through the legislature session, the anti-cow slaughter invoice will likely be tabled and essential preparations have been made in the matter. “Similar acts implemented in other states have been studied and deliberations have taken place in this regard with officials and experts about further strengthening it in our state compared to others.
In the future cow slaughter will be banned in the state and also its sale or purchase of beef both from within and outside the state,” he added. According to the discharge, Chavan mentioned, if the regulation is enacted, together with prohibition on slaughter, sale and use of beef, unlawful transportation of animals for slaughtering will likely be stopped.
The BJP in its manifesto forward of the 2018 meeting election had promised prohibition of cow slaughter. Despite resistance from opposition, the then BJP authorities led by B S Yediyurappa in 2010 had bought the controversial Prevention of Slaughter and Preservation of Cattle Bill handed that proposed to exchange the Karnataka Prevention of Cow Slaughter and Cattle Preservation Act, 1964.
The invoice had widened the definition of ”cattle” and imposed a blanket ban on cattle slaughter, coupled with stringent penalty clauses for violation. However, the Congress authorities headed by Siddaramaiah that got here to energy in 2013, withdrew the invoice that was earlier than the President for his assent.
After the BJP got here again to energy in the state, a number of celebration leaders have been making a pitch to re-enact the anti-cow slaughter regulation. The Minister mentioned Karnataka Animal Welfare Board in the state is empowered to stop any type of animal proper violations.
