Haridwar: Terming those who slaughter cows as the country's biggest enemies, Uttarakhand Chief Minister Harish Rawat on Thursday said they had "no right to live in the country".

"Anyone who kills cows, no matter which community he belongs to is India's biggest enemy and has no right to live in the country," Rawat said addressing a function on the occasion of Gopashtami here yesterday.

Law will deal sternly with those who kill cows in Uttarakhand and the state government will do everything for cow conservation, the CM said.

He said the state government has already passed a proposal against cow slaughter.

He said Uttarakhand is the only state which gives not only land for cowsheds but also helps in arranging for their fodder.
