Madhya Pradesh decided to set up ‘Cow Cabinet,’ after ‘Love Jihad’

When the state shared their plans to formulate a law in order to deter ‘Love Jihad,’ the government of Madhya Pradesh decided to set up a ‘Cow cabinet’ for their protection. The unique panel’s first meeting will be held on 22nd November in Agar Malwa.

Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan, in further elaborating the ‘cow cabinet’ said: “It has been decided to set up a ‘cabinet’ for the protection and promotion of cattle in the state. Animal Husbandry, Forest, Panchayat and Rural Development, Revenue, Home and Farmers Welfare Department will be included in the panel. The first meeting will be held on November 22 at 12 noon on Gopashtami at Gau Sanctuary, Agar Malwa.”

The government of Madhya Pradesh is yet to come up with further details of its powers and responsibilities on the ‘cow cabinet.’

During the assembly polls, followed by the bypolls, cattle conservation had remained a pivotal concern, with the congress party’s efforts to rob BJP of this issue. Kamal Nath’s government, soon after coming to power, had increased the daily allowance for the maintenance needed for the cows, and has also the construction of 1,000 modern cowsheds in the state was announced.

The first cow sanctuary of the country is in Madhya Pradesh’s Agar Malwa. The Kamdhenu Gau Abhyaran was established in 2017 where this facility could shelter up to 6,000 cows in full capacity. Over the years, the sanctuary in Agar Malwa and other places are battling with resource scarcity for the proper upkeep of the cows.
