Shimoga: Karnataka Chief Minister B S Yeddyurappa today termed the Opposition's criticism over the legislation banning cow slaughter as politically motivated.

"When minorities are keeping silent on the issue and are ready to support it, why should political parties create problems?" he asked at a function here.

The remarks came in the backdrop of a JDS delegation led by former Prime Minister H D Devegowda calling on President Pratibha Patil to withhold consent to the Bill.

The Bill was passed recently by both Houses of the Karnataka legislature, despite protests from Congress and JDS.

Yeddyurappa also warned traders selling fertilisers, sowing seeds and pesticides that they would be blacklisted and have criminal cases filed against them if they sell the products in the black market.
