BJP State Spokesperson Sanjay Srivastava said the Congress which had illegally used cows during demonstration and left them unfed, which is unfortunate. Tied with ropes, the way the hungry cows were being pulled by the Congress leaders for the sake of demonstration, was not only pathetic, but the cruelty against the cows very much defeated the very cause of demonstration.

The Congress was demonstrating against the deaths of cows in gaushalas and were themselves carrying out cruelty against them. Srivastava said the Congress which had never thought about Gau-Dhan, during demonstrations, several cows got unwell, but the Congressmen kept on pulling them in scorching heat.

By using the poor cows for the sake of politics and by causing severe harm to them, it has lost the moral rights of taking about cows. Meanwhile the NGO - People for Animal, has taken serious cognizance of the issue where cows being used during demonstration by political parties on issues pertaining to deaths of large numbers of cows in gaushalas. It has called for a detailed report on the said incident. It is necessary to obtain permission from Animal Welfare Board for using animals in any kind of demonstrations. ‘People for Animals’ also known as PFA, is the country’s largest animal welfare organization with a nationwide network of 26 hospitals, 165 units, 60 mobile units and 2.5 lakh members. It works to rescue and rehabilitate sick and needy animals. It sets up and run shelters, ambulance services, sterilization programmes, treatment camps and disaster rescue missions for animals.
