New Delhi: Senior Congress leader and former chief minister of Madhya Pradesh Digvijaya Singh said that “there are some Hindus who eat gau mass (beef)”, and that Vinayak Damodar Savarkar had also said in his book that there was no problem in consuming beef.

“Savarkar had mentioned in his book that there is no relation between Hindu religion and Hindutva, and that a cow is an animal which rolls around in its mal (dirt), so how can it be our ‘mata‘ (mother), and that there is no problem in consuming beef”, Singh said at the Jan Jagran Abhiyan event in Bhopal Saturday.

At the event, Singh also said the Congress was fighting the ideology of the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS). He further said that the BJP will change the Constitution and bring an end to the reservation system if it is voted to power again in 2024.

The Congress launched the Jan Jagran Abhiyan on 14 November to target the BJP and the rising inflation in the country.

As part of the campaign, Congress leaders would clean Dalit houses and distribute pamphlets on the rising prices under the BJP.
