"Those responsible for killing holy cows would not be spared irrespective of political connections," said BJP president Punjab cum MLA Ashwani Sharma.
Sharma added, "Joga agitation is once again an example Hindu Sikh bonding as both stood against the injustice and jointly led the agitation. The anger among the people was so high that a building or structure that could have taken days to demolish was demolished in few hours."
He added BJP is committed to Gau Raksha. It is because of BJP's efforts in the last government that Gau Sewa Borad was formed. The party also got increased imprisonment in crime of cow slaughter from two years to ten years. It is on our demand that CM Punjab has declared to build up Gau Samarak and install Pratima of Gau Mata at factory place.
