A man in West Bengal’s Dankuni area reached a branch of Manappuram Finance Limited in the hope of securing a gold loan against two cows.
Aman in West Bengal’s Dankuni area reached a branch of Manappuram Finance Limited in the hope of securing a gold loan against two cows. He hoped to get the loan after hearing that cow milk contains gold in it.
This comes after West Bengal BJP Chief Dilip Ghosh stirred up a controversy with his sensational theory that milk produced by Indian cows contains gold in it.
The report carried by a news channel in West Bengal spoke to the man who wanted the loan. He said, “I have come here for a gold loan and hence I have brought my cows with me. I heard that there is gold in cow milk. My family depends on these cows. I have 20 cows and if I get the loan, I will be able to expand my business.”
However, Manoj Singh, Pradhan, Garalgacha gram panchayat strongly criticised Dilip Ghosh for his comments and said after he made the claim, everyday people come to him with cows and ask about how much loan they should be able to get against their cows.
He said, “Dilip Ghosh should get Nobel prize for the situation he has created and for claiming that there is gold in cow milk. Every day people are coming in my panchayat with cows and asking me how much loan they can get against the cows. They say their cows produce 15-16 litres milk per day so they should get the loan.”
“I am ashamed after hearing all this. A political leader should talk about roti, kapda, makan. He should think about development. But they (BJP) only talk about religion and Hindutva. People can see what is happening, and they will only take a decision.”
At a programme in Burdwan district, Ghosh said, “A feature of the Indian (desi) cow is that its milk contains gold. That’s the reason the colour of the milk is yellowish.”
During his speech, Ghosh also justified the reason behind his theory and said, “Indian cows have humps, which the foreign cows don’t have. The foreign cow has a straight back, like a buffalo. The hump has an artery, called ‘swarnanari’ (gold artery). When sunlight falls on it, gold is made.”
“So the texture turns yellow or golden. This milk has preventive properties. A person can live on this kind of milk only. You don’t have to eat anything else. It is a complete food,” he said.
