Bhopal (Madhya Pradesh) [India], October 13 (ANI): Following objections from Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) MP Pragya Thakur, the Madhya Pradesh government on Wednesday withdrew the order for sterilization of bulls.
The Animal Husbandry Department withdrew the order after Bhopal MP Thakur called sterilization of bulls against nature. He also met the State Animal Husbandry Minister and Bhopal District Collector regarding this matter.
Talking to media persons, he said, “After discussing the matter with the Chief Minister and the State Animal Husbandry Minister, the Madhya Pradesh government’s order regarding sterilization of bulls has been withdrawn today. I think it is an internal conspiracy. And we have to be vigilant. I will urge the Chief Minister to inquire into the matter.”
He alleged that a conspiracy has been hatched to destroy the indigenous cows.
“Nobody can and should never destroy indigenous cows. How this happened is a matter of investigation. I will request the Chief Minister for an inquiry. Why so many atrocities against indigenous cows. Our Chief Minister opened Gaushalas and Gaushalas. A separate department has been done. Efforts should be made so that such order does not happen again.”
The Congress has also called for the state government’s order against cow protection. Congress media coordinator Narendra Saluja said that while on one hand the government talks about cow protection, on the other hand, sterilization of bulls is being done to eliminate indigenous cows. The party termed the order as “absurd”. (ANI)]]>
