“For the first time, a massacre of this scale has been allowed. The Environment Ministry is writing to all states asking for a list of animals whose killing should be sanctioned, and promising to allow that.”

 

However, the environment minister Prakash Javedkar said that they took action as per the law. 

Javedkar said, “The laws require that if a state says its farmers are being adversely impacted, the centre’s acquiescence is required, and the sanction (to kill) has limited validity.”



 

A JDU leader Neeraj Kumar, who organized the licensed hunt in the Mokama district, said the blue bull menace was destroying farmers year after year and it is needed.

 

The permit to shoot the blue bulls is valid till November in 31 in Bihar’s 39 districts.
