Cuttack: Union Minister for Women and Children Development Maneka Gandhi today said that the Odisha Government has failed to stop cattle smuggling.
“Odisha is very very ahead in cattle smuggling and a large amount of cattle is being transported to Andhra Pradesh and West Bengal. Everybody knows where the cattle are being smuggled. But nobody, including the police do anything,” said Gandhi on the sidelines of a national conference on Animal and Environmental Welfare at the National Law University here.
She said that the money that is obtained from these illegal activities sponsor terrorist activities across the nation.
“It is a threat to the country,” said the Union Minister.
