All Hindus Get Ready For Gow Raksha.. Jai Sri Ram..Jai Gow Matha... हर हिन्दू गौ रक्षा करने के लिए तैय्यार रहे। जय श्री राम, जय गौ माता।

Singh has tendered his resignation to the Telangana BJP president K Laxman.

He further claimed that close to 3,000 cows will be slaughtered on Bakrid next week and he along with his team of ‘gau rakshaks’ will hit the streets to stop cow slaughter in the state. He said that he did not want the BJP to be in a spot for his actions and has hence resigned.

Raja Singh has been booked by the police several times for his controversial speeches having earlier said that "For cow protection, we will kill or we will die. Our aim is to see that cows are not slaughtered."
