Eat dog meat in your home, not on the roads: BJP chief of West Bengal

BURDWAN: The unit president courted the controversy when he attacked few intellectuals for having beef on the roads and asked them to consume 'dog meat' in their homes.

Few intellectuals eat beef on the roads. I tell them to eat dog meat too. Your health will be fine with any animal you eat, but why on the roads? Eat at home, he said at an event on Monday.

He said the cow is our mother and threatened to act against those who misbehave with them.

The cow is our mother. We stay alive by consuming cow's milk. So, if someone misbehaves with my mother, I will treat them the way they should be treated. In the sacred soil of India, killing cows and consuming beef is a crime, he said.

This is not the first time Ghosh makes controversial comments on various topics.

In September, Ghosh had claimed that a bribe worth Rs 2 lakh was offered to prove that people were committing suicide due to (NRC).

Earlier this year, the head of the West Bengal BJP was hired for allegedly asking his party workers to beat their counterparts and TMC police. He made the alleged comment regarding the recent clashes between TMC and the workers of the BJP party in the state.
