Trinamool MP kicks up a row by mocking cow urine in RS

New Delhi, Sep 18 (TIWN) The Trinamool Congress kicked up a row inside the Rajya Sabha on Friday as it mocked cow urine. It found itself in the minority as parties from across the nation vouched for homoeopathy, ayurveda and other alternate sources of medicine.

Trinamool lawmaker Shantanu Sen was speaking about the “terrible condition” of homeopathy centres in the upper house. “What can be expected from a government that says that drinking cow urine can cure disease or Covid-19?

“They are indirectly promoting private medical colleges and quackery,” said Sen.

Many believe in the medicinal quality of cow urine and consider the animal sacred. Many have vouched for its properties to cure cancer among other diseases. Recently film star Akshay Kumar too accepted that he drinks it. The house was discussing the Homoeopathy Central Council (Amendment) Bill, 2020.

The Trinamool though found itself in minority as many parties along with the ruling BJP argued in favour of homeopathy.
