Narendra Modi sternly criticizes Centre for encouraging meat export and the slaughtering of cow-progeny

“The Congress-led central government yearns for making India a top meat-exporting country”

“People must beware of those who are corrupting polity with undemocratic means under the veil of democracy”

CM presents ‘Tarun-Kranti Puraskar’ to Baba Ramdev, Vijay Darda and JITO

 

In a function organized by Jain community in Ahmedabad today Chief Minister Narendra Modi sternly criticized Congress-led central government for encouraging and aiding the meat export and the slaughtering of cow-progeny in a bid to make India a top meat exporting country.

Mr. Modi was speaking at the function held on the occasion of
chaturmas of Jain Digambar muni Tarun Sagarji. During the function, Chief Minister presented ‘tranu-kranti pursakar’ to yog-guru Baba Ramdev, Vijay Darda of Lokmat Patrika group and Jain International Trade Organization (JITO).

Referring to the website of Food Processing Ministry Mr. Modi said the central government is officially promoting cow slaughter. “It has come up with a policy to give Rs.15 crore subsidy for the modernization of abattoirs. The Congress-led central government yearns for making India a top meat-exporting country in 2012. There is a whole network for illegal exporting of cow beef and milch animals via Bangladesh to the foreign slaughterhouses. This will subvert our Indian culture”, he said.

Gujarat gave birth to ‘white revolution’ in the form of milk and cotton production. The states like Punjab and Haryana gave birth to ‘green revolution’ in the form of agricultural production. And now the Congress-led UPA government desires to encourage slaughtering of cow-progeny and meat export under a beautiful name of ‘pink revolution’. This is completely against India’s cultural values, he said.

Mr. Modi said that today when the saints and religious leaders are out to guide people for coming out of various issues our country and society is facing, it is unfortunate that some forces with corrupt mentality abuse these saintly figures. It is only because of these saints the Indian culture is preserved. “People must beware of those who are corrupting polity with undemocratic means under the veil of democracy”, he said.

Chief Minister described Tarun Sagar maharaj as ‘krantivir’ and Baba Ramdev as a ‘guide of young generation’. Mr. Vijay Dorda, despite being in Congress party, termed Mr. Narendra Modi as ‘sher’ (The Lion).

Speaking on the occasion Baba Ramdev appealed people to give highest importance to
rashtra dharma and to work for the good of their country. “Only the one who performs his
rashtra dharma is a true saint”, he said.

Tarun Sagar maharaj said the kind of progress Gujarat made under the reign of Mr. Modi is nowhere seen in any other state of India. He called upon people to adopt the ethos of Indian culture.

Jain leaders felicitated the Chief Minister on the occasion.

At the invitation of the President of the European Council Mr. Charles Michel, Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi participated in the India-EU Leaders’ Meeting today.

The meeting was held in a hybrid format with the participation of leaders of all the 27 EU Member States as well as the President of the European Council and the European Commission. This is the first time that the EU hosted a meeting with India in the EU+27 format. The meeting was the initiative of the Portuguese Presidency of the Council of the European Union.

During the meeting, the leaders expressed their desire to further strengthen the India-EU Strategic Partnership based on a shared commitment to democracy, fundamental freedoms, rule of law and multilateralism. They exchanged views on three key thematic areas: i) foreign policy and security; ii) COVID-19, climate and environment; and iii) trade, connectivity and technology. They discussed forging closer cooperation on combating the COVID-19 pandemic and economic recovery, tackling climate change, and reforming multilateral institutions. India appreciated the prompt assistance provided by the EU and its member states to combat its second COVID wave.

The leaders welcomed the decision to resume negotiations for balanced and comprehensive free trade and investment agreements. Negotiations on both the Trade and Investment Agreements will be pursued on parallel tracks with an intention to achieve early conclusion of both agreements together. This is a major outcome which will enable the two sides to realise the full potential of the economic partnership. India and the EU also announced dedicated dialogues on WTO issues, regulatory cooperation, market access issues and supply chain resilience, demonstrating the desire to deepen and further diversify economic engagement.

India and the EU launched an ambitious and comprehensive ‘Connectivity Partnership’ which is focused on enhancing digital, energy, transport and people-to-people connectivity. The Partnership is based on the shared principles of social, economic, fiscal, climate and environmental sustainability, and respect for international law and commitments. The Partnership will catalyse private and public financing for connectivity projects. It will also foster new synergies for supporting connectivity initiatives in third countries, including in the Indo-Pacific.

India and the EU leaders reiterated their commitment to achieving the goals of the Paris Agreement and agreed to strengthen joint efforts for mitigation, adaptation and resilience to the impacts of climate change, as well as providing means of implementation including finance in the context of COP26. India welcomed the EU’s decision to join CDRI.

India and the EU also agreed to enhance bilateral cooperation on digital and emerging technologies such as 5G, AI, Quantum and High-Performance Computing including through the early operationalization of the Joint Task Force on AI and the Digital Investment Forum.

The leaders noted with satisfaction the growing convergences on regional and global issues, including counterterrorism, cybersecurity and maritime cooperation. The leaders acknowledged the importance of a free, open, inclusive and rules-based Indo-Pacific and agreed to closely engage in the region, including in the context of India’s Indo-Pacific Ocean’s Initiative and the EU’s new strategy on the Indo-Pacific.

Coinciding with the Leaders’ Meeting, an India-EU Business Roundtable was organised to highlight the avenues for cooperation in climate, digital and healthcare. A finance contract of Euro 150 million for the Pune Metro Rail Project was signed by the Ministry of Finance, Government of India, and European Investment Bank.

India-EU Leaders Meeting has set a significant milestone by providing a new direction to the Strategic Partnership and giving a fresh impetus for implementing the ambitious India-EU Roadmap 2025 adopted at the 15th India-EU Summit held in July 2020.
