Speaking on the Patotsav celebration of Goddess Siddheshwari in Rangpur of Mansa taluka in Gandhinagar district Chief Minister Narendra Modi said the people should press the Central government for enacting a law for the protection of cow-progeny and particularly for banning ferrying of cow-beef in railways. Mr. Modi was speaking to a large number of people who gathered for the celebration.

On the occasion, Chief Minister offered prayers to Goddess Siddheshwari.

Appreciating the social awareness campaign held as a part of patotsav celebration he said the religion and culture are the vital forces of our society. He pointed out that Gujarat is the only state which has enacted a law for the protection of cow-progeny.

At one side the Central government is pulling off the reservation rights of backward classes while on the other side the Gujarat government’s efforts for empowering poor are yielding results, he said.
