In response to Kerala beef festivals, BJP unit of West Bengal will conduct milk festivals in all 23 districts of the state.
The BJP West Bengal unit has planned to hold it on June 10.
The decision from BJP comes a day after Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee ordered police to take strict action against cow vigilantes.
â€śCongress and CPM openly defied the law by slaughtering and distributing cow meat in Kerala. We want to give a befitting reply to their beef festivals by organising milk festivals throughout West Bengal on June 10. While cow milk gives us nutrition and life, it has been scientifically proven in London that cow meat is 90 per cent toxic. Vultures became extinct because they fed on cow carcasses. We donâ€™t want our Muslim brothers to get extinct too,â€ť West Bengal Cow Development Cell president and BJP State committee member Subrata Gupta told The New Indian Express.
Gupta also came down on the CM and said that she claimed herself to be a Hindu and asked police to beat up cow rakshaks, means she does not follow Centreâ€™s rule.
He also said that the state BJP unit will go to Supreme Court seeking a ban on cow slaughter in the state.
He added that they will also distribute approximately 200 litres of milk during the festival, as a counter to beef festivals.
They also plan to conduct protests outside slaughterhouses across the state.
