Kohima: The Nagaland Pradesh Congress Committee (NPCC) has said that caution should be taken before passing the Assam Cattle Preservation Bill, 2021.
A release issued by the President of NPCC K Therie stated that the Assam Cattle Preservation Bill should not be detrimental to the inherent trade and food habits of the Northeast. Cow trade in the Northeast extends to Bangladesh and Myanmar through Assam’s length and breadth since time immemorial for the Hill States. Any restriction through the Bill will be detrimental to the inherent trade and deprive food.
Therie said the greater threat is of the law being misused to implicate people unnecessarily. It is a threat to peaceful co-existence. The bill is an imitation of mainland BJP states which have passed cow protection bills.
We cannot simply change our culture to suit the mainland as we need to be tolerant of the surrounding environment. He said Assam being a sovereign State in as much as State List is concerned has the right to legislate its own laws. However, the Bill should not forget that we are a Union of States and we are economically interdependent.
He hoped that good sense will prevail in the House, the release said.
