Proposal for "Minister of Cows" in Madya Pradsesh

Post by Kayalvizhi on Fri Jun 22, 2018 8:55 am

Madhya Pradesh cabinet minister Akhileshwaranand Giri appealed to Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan to create a cow ministry.

Giri said that the chief minister would inspire future generations if cows in the state were taken care. A cow ministry would help create a “golden Madhya Pradesh” and would set a precedent for other states, he said, adding that gaushalas or cow shelters across the state could act as nodal points for day-to-day functioning of the ministry.

It seems that cow protection has become a matter of primary concern for the BJP government in Madhya Pradesh. Several BJP leaders have emphasised the need to save and revere cows as more than just animals. Last year, BJP president Amit Shah had said that the government was considering forming a cow ministry. A few months before Shah’s comments came, defence minister Nirmala Sitharaman remarked that cow protectionism was the spirit behind India’s freedom movement.

why does the cow protection require a separate ministry?
