President of the All India Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen (AIMIM), Asaduddin Owaisi today hit out at the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) saying, “BJP’s hypocrisy is that in Uttar Pradesh Cow is mummy but in the Northeast its yummy.” This statement by Owaisi comes after the implementation of the slaughter house ban in the state of Uttar Pradesh by the newly appointed Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath.
Earlier in March, Nagaland BJP chief Visasolie Lhoungu said, “Ban on cow slaughter like the one in UP won’t take effect in Nagaland if our party comes to power next year. The reality here is very different and our central leaders are aware of that.”
The crackdown against illegal slaughterhouses launched by the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) in Uttar Pradesh was initiated by Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath. Following the footsteps of the UP Chief Minister of banning meat houses in Uttar Pradesh, authorities in Uttarakhand have started taking action against illegal meat shops near Ganga river bank in Uttarkashi, after the order from state chief minister Trivendra Rawat on March 31. On the same day, the meat traders in Uttar Pradesh met state chief minister Yogi Adityanath and extended support on the move to ban illegal slaughterhouses.
Earlier in the month of March after Yogi Adityanath was appointed as the Chief minister of Uttar Pradesh, the AIMIM chief, Asaduddin Owaisi commented on the party’s slogan ‘Sabka Saath, Sabka Vikas.’ He said, “BJP’s slogan of ‘sabka saath, sabka vikas’ is mere farce.” He further said, “A mere provision for a graveyard is constituted as appeasement because the whole environment that has been created in India, particularly in UP, is that Muslims are a threat to the nation,” in an interview with the media.
