New Delhi (ILNS): In an unprecedented move, the BJP-ruled Madhya Pradesh government has decided to set up a ‘gau cabinet’ for the protection of cows in the state.
Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan said in one of his tweets:
“It has been decided to constitute a ‘gau cabinet’ for the protection and fostering of godhan (cow and its progeny) in the state.”
He further informed that ministers of the animal husbandry, forest, panchayat and rural development, revenue, home and farmers’ welfare departments will be included in this cabinet and the first meeting will be held on November 22 to mark Gopashtami at Gau Sanctuary in Agar Malwa.
When this is done, Madhya Pradesh will become the first state to have a ‘gau cabinet’, which would be in line with BJP’s agenda on cow-protection.
