VARANASI – Taking a jibe on ‘Modi hai to Mumkin hai’ slogan by BJP men, shankaracharya of Jyotish and Dwarka Sharda peeths Swami Swaroopanand Saraswati said: “Off course, it is all because of PM Modi that India is now the largest exporter of beef in the world.” This is happening for the first time in India’s history, the seer added.
“Ye wahi Modi ji hain jo Gujarat mein Mukhyamantri rehate hue badi bhav-bhangima ke sath bhashan mein kahate they ki desh mein ho rahi gau hatya ko dekh kar mera hriday jal raha hai. Par unhi Modi ji ne pradhanmantri banana ke baad desh ko gau maans ka sabse bada niryaatak desh bana diya. Aur Modi ji ke log bade garv se kehate hain ki Modi hai to mumkin hai. Hum puchhna chahate hain ki kin chizon ke liye garv kiya jar aha hai’ (This is the same Modi, who as a chief minister of Gujarat used to say painfully that his heart is burning to see cow slaughter in the country, but after becoming Prime Minister he made the India the biggest exporter of beef. And his men proudly say all is possible if there is Modi. I would like to ask what is this pride all about),” the seer was quoted by The Times of India as saying. Swami said this while delivering discourse at Shri Vidya Math on Friday. He further said that after becoming the PM, he (Modi) shifted the abattoirs from industry to farming category, and the road tax from the abattoir to the airport was abolished completely. Besides, the tax on beef export was also reduced from 10% to 6%, and abattoirs were given electricity equal to the rate of farming.
The killers of cows may get further benefits if Modi continues, he said adding when Modi became the PM we had great expectation from him regarding complete ban on cow slaughter, but unfortunately it did not happen. No other government since the independence did Muslim appeasement as the Modi government did, he said citing an example that the Modi government provided scholarship to 2.5 crore minority students, but no Hindu student was given scholarship on this parameter.
