Prime Minister on Wednesday hit out at critics who argue that the mention of words Om and ‘cow’ takes India centuries back, saying they are hell-bent on damaging the country.

PM took the jibe as he launched a nationwide programme in Mathura to save livestock from the foot and mouth disease, delivering 600 million vaccine shots to animals over the next several years.

Beginning with Radhey, Radhey, a customary greeting in Mathura, Modi promoted cleanliness and also spoke against single-use plastic.
