Declaring its commitment to cow preservation, the state federal government has formed a cow cabinet few days back. Earlier, the BJP federal government had actually announced the development of a cow ministry in the state ahead of 2018 assembly surveys in the state.

Besides, items like Gau kastha (wood sticks made from cowdung) will be promoted as an alternate to wood.
In addition to the five ministers who are part of the gau cabinet, the first conference of the cabinet will be accompanied by a seminar to be gone to by 14 cow professionals who will be forwarding their suggestions to the state government.
According to the MP government figures, 627 cowsheds are being run in the state presently which house 1.66 cows. Besides, there are 8.5 lakh stray cows in the state whose upkeep is our collective duty, said CM Chouhan.
” Those who slashed cow fodder budget plan, prepared golf course on land meant for cows and pulled back after revealing cow ministry, are now talking about cow protection and development,” MPCC chief Kamal Nath’s media co-ordinator Narendra Saluja said.
