A big statement has come from PM Narendra Modi again amid ongoing controversies over cow vigilantism in various regions of the country. Addressing the all party meet in New Delhi today, PM Narendra Modi asked all the states to take strict action against those violating law in name of cow protection, news agency PTI reported. “It (cow vigilantism) should not be given political or communal colour; the nation doesn’t benefit from it, said PM Narendra Modi at the meet.
