Set ‘gau-raksha’, triple talaq aside, time to focus on borders, law and order: Mayawati

LUCKNOW: BSP chief Mayawati today expressed pain at the beheading of Indian jawans on the border and said the time has come to shift focus from “divisive” matters like cow protection and triple talaq to law and order and security.

            She criticised the BJP saying that though the party was in power at the Centre and in many states, it had been unable to control the situation as a result of which borders were not safe and jawans were being killed on a daily basis.

            “Time has now come to shift focus from narrow and divisive issues like ‘Gau raksha’ (cow protection), slaughter houses, love-jihad and triple talaq to national interest, law and order and borders,” Mayawati said in a party release here.

            Cow protection, closure of illegal abattoirs and triple talaq are issues which have been consistently raised by the BJP in recent times especially in Uttar Pradesh.

            Mayawati said that there is there is anger in the country over killing of jawans and mutilation of their bodies by Pakistani forces. (AGENCIES)
