There was a commotion in the Karnataka Legislative Council on Tuesday over the cow protection law. Some members of the Congress Legislative Council reached the seat of Deputy Speaker Bhoj Gowda. These men lowered the vice president from his chair and shook him. After that, some members of the Legislative Council rescued him from the Congress MLC. All Congress MLCs were later expelled from the House. The Congress MLC also chanted slogans against the law.

Congress MLC Prakash Rathore said in a commotion that the meeting was not going on. Despite this, the BJP and the Janata Dal Secular (JDS) illegally appointed the vice-president as its chairman. Unfortunately, the BJP is committing such unconstitutional acts. The Congress urged the vice president to step down. We didn’t need to pick them up because they were living illegally.

Discussion on cow protection law in the Legislative Council
The “Karnataka Cattle Slaughter Prevention and Protection Bill 2020” (Karnataka Prevention and Protection of Curiosity Protection 20-2) Bill was to be discussed in the Karnataka Legislative Council. The bill was passed in the parliament only in December. There, too, Congress legislators made a fuss about the bill. The meeting was also boycotted by some members of the Congress. However, it could not be discussed.

Legislation may increase attacks on minorities: Congress
Leaders of Karnataka and Congress leaders said that it would not be right to bring a law banning cow slaughter in the state. After the introduction of this law, attacks on minorities will increase. Congress leaders said the BJP had decided to bring the law for political gain. Elections for Gram Panchayats will be held in two phases of the state next month. In such a situation, the BJP is playing an emotional card by bringing this law.

What is in the law?

  • Cow slaughter is completely banned in Karnataka.
  • Legal action has been taken against cattle smuggling, illegal transportation, torture and killing of cows.
  • There is protection for buffaloes and their calves.
  • There is also a provision for a special court to prosecute those who do so.
  • The bill also provides for the establishment of a shepherd.
  • The police will be able to investigate.
