Telangana: BJP MLA Raja Singh intercepts truck transporting cows allegedly for slaughter

T Raja Singh is the only BJP MLA from Telangana. He has been in the news for his tough stand on cow protection and statements against appeasement politics.

Bharatiya Janta Party’s MLA and firebrand Hindu Leader Raja Singh, on Monday, stopped a truck, carrying over 57 cows and calves, at Shamirpet region of Telangana along with Gau Rakshaks. The truck according to MLA was transporting cows and calves to slaughterhouses. Raja Singh is BJP’s only lawmaker in Telangana assembly, who in past too, has been seen taking a tough stand on Gau Raksha or Cow Protection.

In the video uploaded on Facebook, Raja Singh and his companions can be seen stopping a truck and climbing on the top of it. In the video, cows and calves can be seen loaded in the truck, covered by sides but open on above. Raja Singh inquires about the truck from two men sitting in the truck. MLA later handed over the cows to Cow Shelter and also registered a case.

According to a police official, the cows were transported in the lorry from Odisha. It is still not ascertained, whether the cows were getting transported to slaughterhouses or not.

“We got a tip about this truck transporting cows to a slaughterhouse. So, I along with police officials and Gau Rakshaks chased the truck. We counted the number of cows and calves to 57. Then we registered a complaint at Sharimpat police station, and 6 people have been arrested” Raja Singh gave the details about the incident in the video. He added that cow slaughtering is not a mere Telangana’s issue, but a national issue too. He appealed to Gau Rakshaks to undertake legal and peaceful way to prevent slaughtering of cows than indulging in violence.

Last year, Raja Singh had resigned from BJP and as an MLA to  “commit himself” to Gauraksha. He had said that for him, Dharma and Gau-Raksha (cow protection) is more important than Politics. He had also stated that the government of Telangana is a ‘Gau-hatyari sarkar’ (cow-killer government). He also had accused the Chief Minister of Telangana, K Chandrashekhar Rao, of planning to organize the slaughter of scores of cattle on Eid to get Muslims to vote for his party.

He was re-elected from Goshamahal Assembly, during the last year’s assembly elections. He had hit headlines recently when he had declared that he will not take oath in front of pro-tem Speaker of the Telangana assembly Mumtaz Ahmed Khan belonging to the All India Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen or AIMIM.
“I will not take oath in front of a person, whose party wants to finish the Hindu community, wage war in the country and refuse to chant Vande Mataram and Bharat Mata ki Jay” He had said. He had also accused CM KC Rao of colluding with AIMIM.
