He blamed the government of the day were adopting a policy to patronize lawless vigilantism.

"I urge the state governments to prepare a dossier of such self-proclaimed volunteers and big cow protectors".

According to Dal Khalsa, Modi's snub to so-called cow protectors came only after global media and the credible NGO's took strong exception to religious intolerance under BJP regime. "Some people indulge in anti-social activities at night, and in the day masquerade as cow protectors", Modi had said whilelaunching the PMO Mobile Application and interacted with the audience present there. "This will be a big sewa", said the Prime Minister, who was addressing the concluding session of the Town Hall meeting organised at Indira Gandhi Stadium Complex here on Saturday to mark the second anniversary of MyGov (dot) in.

He gave a clarion call to all oppressed classes and peoples to unite for struggle for dignity and justice. We need to beware of these people.

In his first Town-Hall in Delhi, Modi had yesterday strongly rebuked the cow vigilantes, saying majority were "anti-social" elements running "shops" in the name of cow protection which made him "angry".

The solution to all our problems lies in development, Modi said. Sadly, we only realise the importance of water when there is no access to it.

Mission Bhageeratha is a brain child of Telangana Chief Minister K.Chandrashekar Rao to provide safe drinking water through pipe line at Komatibanda at Gajwel in Medak district.

Leader of the Congress party in the Lok Sabha Mallikarjun Kharge said: "Prime Minister came to power in the name of the poor, but now he is not able to protect them".

This is Prime Minister's maiden visit to Telangana after formation of the state in June 2014.

He also laid foundation stone for 1,600 MW Telangana Super Thermal Power Project being set up by National Thermal Power Corporation (NTPC) with an investment of Rs 10,500 crore at Ramagundam in Karimnagar district. Modi also inaugurated Phase I of "Mission Bhagiratha", aimed at providing safe drinking water to people of the area.
