Kundapur, October 5: The leader of the Hindu Jaagarana Vedike Ravindra Patil demanded to take stringent actions against those who are involved in illegal cattle trafficking and slaughter of cattle which is taking place around Gangolli gram panchayat limits. He also said that those who are involved in such cases should be sent in exile and are hurting the beliefs of the majority Hindus.
He was addressing a massive protest organised by the Hindu Jagarana Vedhike in front of the Gangolli village Panchayat. The protest was organised opposing the overlook of the concerned officials over the issue of the illegal cattle trafficking, illegal slaughter houses, beef stock and cattle thefters.
No actions were taken on this issue which is continuously taking place at Gangolli even though protest was staged a number of times and memorandum was also submitted. Those who have involved in this act have submitted false statements that the cattle were being reared for agricultural purposes and are going against the law. Although the concerned authorities are aware of this they are keeping quiet which shows that the law is let loose. Over the same issue, the HJV activists were assaulted, he alleged.
The issue over the illegal cattle trafficking, illegal slaughter houses, beef stock issues in Gangolli have an impact on the communal bonding. The culprits should be punished and the slaughter houses should be inspected. If the matter is overlooked once again, the association will hold a massive protest at Taluk and district levels he said.
A memorandum was submitted to Gangolli village panchayat and Gangolli police station. The gram panchyat president Reshma R Kharvi, vice president Mahesh Raj poojary, PDO Praveen D’Souza and Gangolli Police Sub-Inspector Madhusoodhan received the memorandum. Gram panchayat member Raja Kharvi, Shrinivas Kharvi, Lakshmi Ganiga, Sharada Sherigar, Padma, Gopala Kharvi and others were present.
The convenor of the Gangolli HJV Rathnakara Gaaniga, Mohan Khaarvi, Shridhar Nayak, Raghunatha Kharvi, Umanath Devadiga, Vishwanatha, Naveena Doddahitlu, Manikantah Kharvi, Jayaraj Devadiga, Manoj, Nithyananda Kharvi and others were present.
