To conserve cows, the BJP Government in Madhya Pradesh led by Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan is mulling to impose ‘cow cess’ on the public to raise funds for this cause.
Reaffirming commitment to cow conservation, Shivraj government days ago has formed a cow cabinet.
Prior to this, the BJP government in the run up to 2018 assembly polls had announced formation of a cow ministry in the state.
As part of our plan, rearing of cows and milk and other by-products will be promoted, said Chouhan in the review meeting.
Besides, there are 8.5 lakh stray cows in the state whose upkeep is our collective responsibility, said CM Chouhan.
