BJP received Rs 2.50 cr in donations from buffalo meat exporting firm

Posted Star Web Media Wednesday, December 16, 2015


Contribution reports for financial years 2013-2014 and 2014-2015 submitted to the Election Commission of India has revealed that the BJP received donations worth Rs 2.50 crores from companies that export buffalo meat.
According to a report in The Times of India, subsidiaries of Allanasons Ltd — Frigorifico Allana Ltd, Frigerio Converva Allana Ltd and Indagro Foods Ltd — before the Lok Sabha elections on 2014. Later in 2014-15 Frigerio Converva Allana Ltd had donated Rs 50 lakh more.
Allanasons Ltd is supposed to the largest exporter of meat in India.
This assumes significance given that during the run up to the Lok Sabha polls Prime Minister Narendra Modi had made meat export a poll issue. He had criticised the Congress in a rally in Nawada, Bihar saying, "We had heard of White Revolution, we have heard of Green Revolution, but the government in Delhi wants a 'pink revolution'. Do you know what a pink revolution is? The government is keeping you in the dark."
He had criticised the UPA government for "destroying our rivers of milk" and setting up slaughter houses.
The revelation that BJP has received donations from a meat exporting company may cause controversy given BJP's stand against consumption of meat.
The opposition parties have criticised the BJP for its 'intolerance' towards after the Dadri lynching and the Kerala House raid.
