Mangalore : Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi who launched a frontal attack on the Congress led UPA government at the Centre, alleged that the Government was extending all possible facilities for beef exporters.
Addressing, an election rally of the BJP at Nehru Maidan on May 2, Thursday, he said the union government has brought about an agenda called pink revolution to facilitate export of beef. He further alleged that cattle was being smuggled from India to the neighbouring Bangladesh.
Continuing, Modi said “ We all have heard about green revolution. Have you heard of a pink revolution? This is a secret agenda of the Union government for export of beef. The government exempts a person who opens a slaughter house from payment of tax for five years. Not just that, it also advances loan upto Rs 5 crore. A transport allowance of Rs 5 per every km is given for export of beef. Should we vote such a party to power?” he questioned.
We have a weak, aimless and poverty stricken government at the Centre. On the torture meted out to Sarabjit Singh, an Indian prisoner in Pakistan jail, leading to his death, Modi said the Pakistan Government had committed an extra-judicial murder. He also criticized the Centre for its silence on Sarabjit killing.
Stating that Indias neighbours have been creating problems in one way or the other, Modi added the Prime Minister has chosen to remain silent even when China was creating roads and bunkers in Indian territory.
He urged the voters of Karnataka to reject Congress and elect the BJP to power for a secure tomorrow.
Modi who began his speech in Kannada saying “Mangalurina Nanna Preethiya Sodara Sodariyare”, further said he would have spoken in Kannada had he been taught Kannada. Modi gave his speech in Hindi.
