Strict Action Will Be Taken Against Cow Vigilante Groups, Says PM Modi
17 July 2017, 01:36 | Max Haynes
Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday warned those breaking the law in the name of cow protection and asked the states to take stringent action against them, but cautioned against giving political or communal colour to the issue.
In the entire complaint, "the nature of allegations made are only that Prime Minister has failed to take action", which do not attract the provisions of Section 14 (habitual committing of offence) of the Prevention of Corruption Act "in any manner", the court said.
The government on Sunday called an all-party meeting ahead of the Monsoon Session 2017 which is all set to begin on Monday.
That could possibly be why the prime minister simply put the onus of controlling cow vigilantes and bringing the guilty to justice to state governments. Both parties said their MPs were preoccupied with work. Opposition leaders took up the issue of recent attacks on minorities and Dalits.
Quite in the last month, our country witnessed one among the many Lynching stories that affect our society and makes it even more primitive than it was in the earlier times: The case of a Muslim Boy with the name of Junaid, who was lynched in a train.
While the ruling BJP-led NDA has named Ram Nath Kovind its candidate, the Congress-led group of Opposition parties has fielded former Lok Sabha Speaker Meira Kumar.
Modi also appeared to be taking a dig at RJD chief Lalu Prasad, who is facing fresh corruption charges, as he sought cooperation in fight against corruption. Kovind has a big numerical advantage over his rival.
The Parliamentary Affairs Minister Ananthkumar told the reporters by quoting the PM Modi's words at the meeting in Parliament House that "The central government has sent advisories to the state governments".
The Prime Minister came when the meeting was on and addressed the assembled leaders for five-seven minutes, said a participant. To preserve institutions of democracy, Modi said, it was important that all political parties support the government in conducting the business in Parliament without disruption so constructive discussion can take place on issues of national importance.
On GST roll-out, Kumar said that the prime minister called the reform an example of "co-operative federalism".
The all-party meet was held at Parliament House. Among those opposition leaders who attended the meeting were Ghulam Nabi Azad (Congress), Sharad Pawar (NCP), Sitaram Yechury (CPI-M), Mulayam Singh Yadav (SP) and D Raja (CPI). Trinamool Congress had boycotted the meeting.
