Attacking PM Narendra Modi for his comments on Dalit, Pramod Tiwari in Rajya Sabha on Monday said the PM is worried about his votes, that’s why he said ‘shoot me’, had he been concerned, he would have shown concern for minorities in J&K and Ranchi. Expressing concern over the recent attacks on people from Dalit community, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday said that there is a need for strict action against those involved in it. Addressing a public rally in Hyderabad, Modi urged opponents to stop doing politics on Dalit and asked the assaulters to attack him instead of Dalits. “If you want to attack, attack me and not Dalits. If you want to shoot, shoot me and not Dalits,” said Modi.

Tiwari also said that PM is looking for fake ‘gau rakshaks’. Breaking his silence over self-proclaimed ‘Gau Rakshaks’, Modi called for strict actions against them and asked states to prepare dossiers of those people who are running ‘shops’ in the name of cow protection. “I feel very angry at this Gau Raksha( cow protection) business. Some people indulge in anti-social activities in night and turn ‘Gau Rakshaks’ during the day. They have opened “shops” in name of cow protection. All states should take stern action against these people,” the PM said while addressing a townhall-style event at the Indira Gandhi Stadium Complex in New Delhi.

The PM said that cows are not dying because of slaughter, but due to pollutants like plastic. “Cows mostly die from eating plastic bags+ and these Gau rakshaks should urge people not to throw plastic on roads, this will be a big sewa,” the PM said.
