New Delhi, Aug 9: The Akhil Bharat Hindu Mahasabha on Monday said that it would send legal notice to Prime Minister Narendra Modi for his comments against "Gau Rakshaks (cow protestors).
"We are sending a legal notice to the Prime Minister asking that on what grounds he declared 70-80 per cent Gau Rakshaks as anti-social elements," Swamy Chakrapani, a leader of Aakhil Bharat Hindu Mahasabha told a TV news channel.
His remark came after Modi hit out against cow vigilantes in his interaction at Town Hall-style meeting in New Delhi on Saturday and at a speech in Telangana on Sunday in both of which he asked states to probe the fake "gau rakshaks" and take strong action against them, saying they were destroying the country.
'Gau rakshaks' and many right-wing organisations across the country lashed out at Modi for his comments against cow vigilantism.
Chakrapani further said: "PM's remarks (on Gau Rakshaks) are irresponsible and he should immediately resign. The BJP and RSS will have to pay the price for such statements in Uttar Pradesh assembly elections in 2017."
Lashing out at Modi, president Gau Rakshak Dal, Pawan Pandit said that whatever statements the PM had given in last two days over cow vigilantism are "condemnable".
"PM Modi should apologise for his remarks over Gau Rakshaks and should also take his statements back," Pandit told a TV news channel.
