Suresh Gopi, the actor who is all set to try a hand in politics, openly stated his support for the beef ban, issued by the Maharashtra Government. Suresh Gopi says that it is the duty of a responsible citizen, to obey the rules issued by the Judiciary and Government.
The actor revealed that he and his family members have never consumed beef. Suresh Gopi opened up about his take on the recently implemented bill, which is based on the Animal Welfare Act of 1976; in a recent interview.
But, beef ban has been receiving huge oppositions from the media and public. According to the Maharashtra Animal Preservation Amendment, killing the animals including cow and buffalo, and consumption of meat are subjects to crime.
The culprits will be sentenced to 5 years of imprisonment without bail and 10000 Rs fine. The bill, which was passed in 1995, has been implemented now, with the consent of the President of India.
Suresh Gopi, who is all set to join the Bharathiya Janatha Party soon, has been highly active for the social cause. The actor has always been a subject of controversies, with his outspoken nature.
If the reports are to be believed, Suresh Gopi will contest in the upcoming Lok Sabha elections, as a BJP candidate. The authorities of the party are reportedly very keen to have the actor on the boards.
