    Well it shows positive as well as negatives of RSS and BJP. The good thing is a car in RSS convoy overturned to save a cow on road in other words the driver tried to save himself and others in car from accident however managed not to hit cow but still met with accident and the car got overturned resulting in injuries to some security personnels. Now a days these kind of accidents has increased drastically due to cows on roads resulting in many deaths. And all this on the name of 'Gau Raksha' but where are the Gau Rakshaks at this time. They only come out to beat anyone whoever they feel suspicious of cow smuggling and beef exporter without any proper proof. But instead of beating others there should be Gaushalas where these cows and bull which are roaming on roads and eating garbage should get a better life. Sorry to say but the government is not doing anything about it but increased fear of Gau Rakshak Goons in the eyes of people. Now the crops of poor farmers are been eaten by these cows and bull. And they don't even dare to scare them and keep them out of their fields just because of the fear of Gau Rakshaks. Government needs to do something about this or that day will come soon when this incident will happen with the convoy of our own beloved PM.
