Mangaluru, Mar 06, 2021: On the pretext of clearing a Goshala encroachment in Kenjaru the BJP has rendered homeless several cows and calves, alleged former mayor Kavitha Sanil.
Speaking to the media at the Congress office on March 6, Saturday, she said the BJP MLAs and MPs who resort to politics in the name of cow during election time are now silent when cattle are rendered homeless.
"There is no objection to the setting up of a Coast Guard Academy. If a government land has been encroached then action could have been taken against those concerned. The building could have been vacated by making alternate arrangements for the cattle, but in this case the poor animals have been left on the streets. What else can such people be called but fake cattle lovers?," she questioned.
Showing old photos of BJP leaders offering Gau Pooja in the place, she questioned why none of them have now visited when the cows are roaming on the streets.
Party leaders Prakash Salian, Deepak Poojary, Rajaneesh Kapikad and others were present.
