New Delhi: Bhartiya Janata Party received the donation of 2.50 crores from the companies that export buffalo meat according to the financial reports of contributions submitted to the Election Commission of India in the year 2013-2014 and 2014-2015.
Allanasons Ltd, supposedly the biggest meat exporter in India, donated the money before 2014 Lok Sabha elections.
Narendra Modi had targeted Congress in the run-up to the elections in 2014 for “destroying the rivers of milk” and setting up the slaughterhouse.
This revelation goes against the stand BJP took, on the whole, beef issue. The saffron party received a lot of criticism for the Dadri lynching and Kerala house raid.
BJP was very critical of the Congress and other opposition for the money used in the election campaigns.
The Times of India report puts a question mark on the right wing party’s policy on beef. The politicization of the beef issue was one of the biggest news of the year.
From the moment states like Haryana and Maharashtra put a ban on beef, this issue was in the light as much as to the extent that a person lost his life.
This report indicates that the issue over beef is made up according to the political need. While, receiving a donation is not wrong in any condition but ethically it is wrong to criticize others for the same thing.
In Indian politics, it is a trend that parties bash the other party for the same things that they have done in the past or will not hesitate to do in future if it is politically beneficial to their cause.
