Udupi: "The union government should amend the constitution for protection of cow. The government has been showing negligence and carelessness about the Cow Protection Act. The preservation of cow is important to humanity in terms of religious, economic, hygienic as well as agricultural point of view. In Karnataka, a maximum number of cows are being transported to the Kerala slaughter houses. The earlier state government had brought the Karnataka Prevention of Slaughter and Preservation of Cattle Bill 2010 and the Karnataka Prevention of Cow Slaughter and Preservation (Amendment) Bill 2012. The present government had withdrawn the bill to appease one particular community. The Union government cannot pass the anti-cow slaughter bill directly. But it can bring an amendment to the constitution with a stronger anti-cattle slaughter law. The voters should also give their precious vote during the elections to the party will bring a stronger anti-cattle slaughter law," said Sri Vishwesha Theertha Swamji of Paryaya Pejawar Math.

He was addressing the day-long hunger strike “Go Satyagraha” seeking a ban on cow slaughter. Other demands include punishment for the guilty with imprisonment up to seven years and fines up to Rs 50,000. A uniform law across the nation on cow slaughter and seizure of vehicles involved in illegal transportation of cows are included in the list of demands.

Sri Vishwapriya Tirtha Swamiji of Pejawar Math, Sri Vidyavallbha Thirtha Swamiji of Kaniyoor Math, Sri Kalahasthendra Swamiji of Anegundi Math Katapadi, Raghupathi Bhat, Lalaji R Mendon former MLA’s, Mattar Rathnakar Hegde BJP district president, Hindu outfit leaders Dr M B Puranik, Vilas Nayak, Sunil K R and others were present.
