It is notable that the Animal Husbandry Minister of Karnataka, K.K. Venkatesh had indicated on Saturday that the newly formed Congress government in the state may review the ‘anti-cow slaughter’ law brought by the previous BJP government. Also, he questioned that when buffaloes can be slaughtered then why not cows.

Congress top leadership handled the matter in time!
Earlier there was a BJP government in Karnataka. In the year 2020, the BJP passed a law against cow slaughter in Karnataka. After the coming of the new government, it was expected that this law should be abolished. Animal Husbandry Minister K. Venkatesh’s statement has come to the fore. However, considering the public sentiment and Hindu voters, the central leadership of the Congress is currently not in a mood to air the issue. The Congress party knows that next year general elections are to be held in the country. This is the reason why at present Minister K. Venkatesh has been advised to keep his mouth shut.
