The NDA government will try its “level best” to bring in a countrywide ban on slaughter of cows by evolving a consensus, says Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh.

Cow slaughter cannot be accepted in this country. We will make all-out efforts to ban slaughter of cows. Nobody can question our commitment to ban slaughter of cows. The BJP government in Madhya Pradesh has enacted a tough law for this purpose so has the Maharashtra government.
— Rajnath Singh, Union Home Minister

Singh said the government needs to have an absolute majority in both Houses of Parliament to enforce complete ban on slaughter of cows. The BJP lacks numbers in Rajya Sabha.
