Guwahati, Mar 2: A ruling BJP MLA, Suman Haripriya, today claimed that cow urine and cow dung can heal Coronavirus and cancer.
The filmmaker-turned-politician made the assertion on the medicinal qualities of cow urine and dung in the state Legislative Assembly on the first day of the Budget Session.
Taking part in a discussion on cattle smuggling in the state, Haripriya said saints of olden times would use cow dung and other herbs during 'hawans' (holy fire) and the smoke would purify the air for 5-10 kms.
She suggested that India can once again attempt such air purification.
The legislator further suggested that use of cow dung and 'panchamrit' made of cow urine, honey and milk was consumed by saints, which ensured their long lives.
She said these can be used to beat Coronavirus also, while also claiming that these also heal cancer. (UNI)
