Commenting on the proposal to bring in a bill to ban cow slaughter, the Congress chief spokesperson, S. Jaipal Reddy, said the party had always endeavoured to impose such a ban and had legally done so in many States "even before the Bharatiya Janata Party was born". Yet, the Congress was of the view that the subject was a matter reserved for the States and it did not want the federal structure tampered with. The Congress, he said, believed that such a bill would be outside the legislative competence of Parliament.
"We believe that the Bill is not admissible on the grounds of legislative competence."
