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.

The BJP on Monday held Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal responsible for the death of a sanitation worker in a drain saying that the government was playing with their lives as they are not given protective gear.

“This is not the first time that such an incident has happened. Due to the negligence of the government, sanitation staff goes for cleaning sewers and dies there after inhaling toxic fumes. They are never saved even after rescue operations,” Delhi BJP Chief Manoj Tiwari told reporters here.

His remarks come a day after a sanitation worker choked to death after he got trapped inside an underground drain while cleaning it in north Delhi’s Jahroda area.

The work of cleaning the drain was being carried out by the Delhi government’s flood control department.

“Sanitation workers are our helpers and Kejriwal government is playing with their lives,” he said.

Highlighting the deaths of sanitation workers in Delhi in the past few years, the BJP MP from the North East Delhi Lok Sabha constituency said that in September 2018, five sanitation workers died while in August 2017, 10 died inside sewers.

“Kejriwal is responsible for the deaths of sanitation workers who die while cleaning sewers and the investigating agencies should take action against him,” he said.

Attacking Kejriwal, Tiwari said, “During the last three to four years, more than 60 workers have died.”

He also accused Kejriwal of not fulfilling his promise of providing safety equipment to sewer workers and mechanical sweeping.

A senior Delhi Police official said that it has registered a case under relevant sections of the Indian Penal Code over the death of the sanitation worker.

The sanitation worker has been identified as Kishan, 37, a resident of north Delhi’s Wazirabad area.
