Cow slaughter banned

Raipur Dec. 17. The BJP Government in Chhattisgarh, headed by Raman Singh, today banned cow slaughter and decided to provide relief to farmers by writing off their soft loans. ``Cow slaughter is now totally banned in the State and anyone engaged in it will attract punishment,'' the Chief Minister told reporters here after the first meeting of the Cabinet. The Government also decided to set up new `Gaushalas' and strengthen the existing ones as promised in the election manifesto. — PTI
