Mulayam Singh Yadav, president of the Samajwadi Party, raised the concern over cow slaughter and the declining number of the bovine, in Lok Sabha on Tuesday.

According to Business Standard, Yadav, during the Question Hour said that he wanted to raise an "important question relating to declining number of cows."

Yadav, who claimed that he has been rearing 1,600 cows, said, "It is an important matter...People steal cows, cut them and sell it in the US...The number is falling."

However, speaker Sumitra Mahajan and Congress President Sonia Gandhi reminded him that the question related to livestock was over.

The first question the Lok Sabha took during Question Hour was related to insurance for livestock. The second one related to shortage of pulses.
