Cow politics damaged India's GDP: Manpreet Singh Badal at State of the State Punjab
Punjab Minister for Finance & Planning Manpreet Singh Badal on Thursday said that the government could have benefited the GDP of the country from its milk production. But, he said, "the country's cow protection politics in India has once again forced us to do business with buffalo milk."
Manpreet Singh Badal was speaking on Punjab Economy - Challenges and Priorities at India Today's State of the State Conclave Punjab on Wednesday.
The Punjab minister said that the Narendra Modi government has not been mean to the state of Punjab. But unfortunately, Manpreet Singh Badal said, the state has not been able to convince the Modi government that Punjab has been damaged.
