West Bengal Bharatiya Janata Party president Dilip Ghosh has made bizarre statements saying that cow milk contains gold and that is the reason its milk colour is golden.
Ghosh was addressing a gathering in Burdwan district of West Bengal on Monday, organised by the Ghosh and Gavi (cow) Kalyan Samiti.
During the event, Ghosh said, “few intellectuals eat beef on roads, I tell them to eat dog meat too, their health will be fine whichever animal they eat, but why on roads? Eat at your home.”
Dilip Ghosh further added, “Cow is our mother, we stay alive by consuming cow milk, so if anyone misbehaves with my mother, I will treat them the way they should be treated. On the holy soil of India killing cows and consuming beef is a crime.”
Dilip Ghosh also went to claim that Indian cowshave a special characteristic- Indian cow milk contains gold and that is the reason its milk colour is golden.
Listing out the reason behind ‘milk has gold’ logic, Ghosh said that, “there is a nari (blood vein) in the humps of desi cows that produces gold with the help of sunlight. As for aunty breeds, there was no hump in foreign cows that’s why no gold.”
In 2017, Ghosh had asked party workers to beat policemen if they hesitate to take action against Trinamool Congress supporters. In December 2018, Ghosh had warned Kolkata Police of ‘stripping’ them of their uniforms if the party comes to power, accusing policemen of filing false cases complaints against party workers.
