"Both Uttar Pradesh and Jharkhand are BJP-ruled states. But their Chief Ministers are functioning differently. In Jharkhand, cow slaughter has been banned since 2005, but it has not been implemented effectively," Mr Mishra told IANS.
He also said, "BJP president Amit Shah has fulfilled his promise in Uttar Pradesh by ensuring closure of illegal slaughter houses. When will the abattoirs in Jharkhand be closed? When will the cattle smuggling stop in Jharkhand?"
"In Jharkhand, cattle smuggling worth more than Rs 300 crore is taking place. The cattle of the state are smuggled to Bangladesh," Mr Mishra said.
He alleged there is rampant slaughter of cattle, including cows, in the state.
