Video of Union Minister Raosaheb Patil Danve supporting cow slaughter goes viral, minister calls it manipulated

Union Minister Raosaheb Patil Danve has issued a statement stating that the video that is doing the rounds on the Internet is misleading and doctored by the miscreants

BJP leader and Union Minister for Consumer Affairs, Food and Public Distribution, Raosaheb Patil Danve has landed himself in the soup with his controversial statements supporting cow slaughter. In a video that has gone viral now, the Union Minister can be heard assuring Muslims that they need not worry about ban on cow slaughter that has been implemented several states in the country, so long as he is the minister.

The speech was apparently made while Patil was in his home constituency Bhokardan, Jalna on the hustings for the recently concluded Maharashtra Vidhan Sabha elections. “I give wheat for Rs 2 per kg, rice for Rs 3 per kg. Should I stop it? All the illegal businesses in this district happen in this area only. Sandalwood, rice, all illegal businesses happen here. Should I put a stop on all this? After our government implemented a ban on cow slaughter, 2-4 Muslims of this region approached me lamenting that Bakrid is in the offing but they are not being allowed to slaughter for sacrifice. I told them as long as Raosaheb is in power, you won’t be stopped.”

However, after the video went viral on the social media websites, Union Minister Raosaheb Patil Danve has issued a statement stating that the video that is doing the rounds on the Internet is misleading and doctored by the miscreants. He has asserted that he had made no such comment about cow slaughter in his meeting at the Muslim dominated region of Kathor Bazaar of Bhokardan.

“It has been brought to my notice that video of my meeting during the Maharashtra Assembly election campaign in the Muslim area of Kathor Bazaar of Bhokardan is being circulated on the electronic media and other social media websites. I would like to clarify that I have made no such comment regarding cow slaughter and the video that is being shared online is manipulated to convey a wrong message in the society,” the issued statement said.
