PATNA: RJD chief Lalu Prasad’s elder son Tej Pratap Yadav has kicked up a fresh controversy by seeking a ban on cow slaughter quite like the ban on currency notes.
“Prime Minister Narendra Modi should also ban cow slaughter the way he banned the high-value notes in the country,” Yadav was quoted as saying in a Hindi daily on Sunday.
He reportedly said the cow slaughter had not been stopped despite a ban on it adding the Bihar government would very soon effectively implement the ban on cow slaughter.
Yadav is ardent follower of Krishna and is often seen applying long sandal mark on his forehead.
Yadav who is health minister in the ruling Nitish Kumar government in Bihar is currently on tour of Vrindavan—a town in Mathura district of Uttar Pradesh which is ruled by Akhilesh Yadav, his relative.
Krishna is believed to have spent his childhood days in Vrindavan, according to Hindu mythology.
