Unfair to link BJP with cow vigilantism: Nitin Gadkari 23.5.2017 DNA: India
A veteran BJP leader and Union Minister of Roads and Highways, Nitin Gadkari speaks in an interview with Sanjay Jog on the three-year rule of the BJP-led government, the Opposition's allegations of indulging in communal politics and the upcoming Presidential election. Excerpts: As your government completes three years in office, the Opposition has blamed the BJP for communal politics and polarising the society. What is your take? Let me be very clear that the government is sincerely pursuing its 'sabka saath sabka vikas' motto. We are not indulging in communal politics, and neither do we discriminate against anybody on the grounds of caste, creed, religion or language. It is quite unfair to link the BJP with persons dressed in saffron and organisations responsible for some incidents of cow vigilantism and violence. There was no relationship between the two. Stern action will be taken against those taking the law into their own hands. There is a well-planned strategy to defame the BJP-led government at ...

Slaughterhouse blues: After Uttar Pradesh, Bihar & Jharkhand clamp down on illegal abattoirs 1.4.2017 DNA: Opinion
In the wake of newly-appointed Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath's bid to clamp down on illegal slaughterhouses, several states, including as many as five Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP)-ruled states have followed in for the closure of illegal abattoirs across the country. Even as the Jharkhand government earlier last week issued an order for closure of all illegal slaughterhouses in the state within 72 hours, the Gujarat State Assembly on Friday amended its Cow Protection Law introducing a life term for those slaughtering the animal. Seven illegal slaughterhouses were sealed in Bihar's Rohtas district after the Patna High Court directed them to be sealed within six weeks. Various cow protection organisations from Rajasthan, Uttarakhand, Chhattisgarh and Madhya Pradesh have also started demanding for the closure of various meat shops in the respective states. The Bajrang Dal and the Vishva Hindu Parishad activists have also been asking for an increase in the punishment for cow slaughter to life ...

Centre should order building of Ram Mandir on Babri Masjid site: VHP 31.3.2017 DNA: Mumbai
In a press conference in Mumbai on Thursday, the general secretary of the Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP) said that the central government should pass an order for building a "Bhavya Ram Mandir" at Babri Masjid demolition site even before the Supreme Court decides on the matter. The press conference was held at the Mumbai Press Club.  Babri Masjid was demolished on December 6, 1992 despite assurances given by the then Uttar Pradesh chief minister Kalyan Singh that the masjid will not be damaged.  "In (UP) state as well as in Centre, the government is now of Ram Bhakts and Rashtra Bhakts. There is no reason why there should be any delay for Bhavya Ram Mandir when the other party does not want to talk," said Surendra Jain, VHP general secretary.  Jain accused the Muslim community of "not wanting to talk" on the subject and that the "patience of Hindus cannot wait endlessly". "If someone does not want to talk, nothing can be done. The puja is going on there and we are now creating Jan Jagran," said Jain. When ...
