Karnataka Chief Minister BS Yediyurappa on Monday informed that his government will introduce a law against 'Love-Jihad' in the next Assembly session.

“We are thinking to introduce a law against 'Love-Jihad' next session," Yediyurappa said.

He further said that the anti-cow slaughter bill will be introduced during the ongoing winter session of the Karnataka legislature.

"We had introduced the cow slaughter prohibition bill earlier but Governor sent it back. I have asked Law Minister to introduce it in the current session, probably he will introduce the bill Tuesday or Wednesday”, he said on Monday.

Meanwhile, Karnataka Minister R Ashok has asserted that the State Government will discuss the model of the cow slaughter bill with Uttar Pradesh, Gujarat and Madhya Pradesh, revise it and bring the bill.
