HISAR: Lash­ing out at Haryana chief min­is­ter (CM) Manohar Lal Khat­tar on Sun­day, Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) na­tional con­vener and Delhi CM Arvind Ke­jri­wal said the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) was seek­ing votes in the name of cow but had failed to pro­vide proper fod­der for the an­i­mal.

Ad­dress­ing a gath­er­ing in Said­pur vil­lage of Sonepat dis­trict, Ke­jri­wal said, “The Delhi gov­ern­ment is pro­vid­ing ₹40 per cow every­day to cat­tle own­ers while the Haryana gov­ern­ment is spend­ing only 40 paisa a day for cows’ fod­der and treat­ment.

“Nei­ther are we in­dulging in cow pol­i­tics, nor are we ask­ing for votes in its name. AAP is only fo­cussing on car­ing for the cow,” said Ke­jri­wal.

He fur­ther said, “If AAP is voted to power in Haryana, we will pro­vide all pos­si­ble help for cows in the state. Ev­ery­one in the coun­try is ad­mir­ing the ed­u­ca­tional, health, wa­ter and elec­tric­ity fa­cil­i­ties in Delhi. And the gov­ern­ment-run gaushala in Bawana (Delhi) has been given the best gaushala award.”

AAP’S Haryana chief Naveen Jai­hind said, “If the con­di­tion of stray cat­tle in the state is very mis­er­able. Now the vot­ers will throw out the BJP gov­ern­ment out of the state.”
