Giving necessary instructions for cow protection in the state, Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Mohan Yadav on Monday chaired a cabinet meeting held at Mantralaya in the state capital. According to the information, CM Yadav asked the ministers to make all necessary arrangements for the cows, including the shelters, regulating movements of cows and cremations of the deceased cows. 

According to the information, the ministers have been asked to make proper arrangements for the cremation and ensure that the remains of the cattle are not insulted.

The Council of Ministers also welcomed the decision and said that the cooperation of social organizations should also be taken in this work. Following this the chief minister instructed the Animal Husbandry and Dairy Department to make necessary preparations for the same. The chief minister also encouraged the minister to make sure that the meeting happens within a month and asked for the participation of the city mayor and public representatives. 

While speaking at the meeting, CM Yadav highlighted the concerns, "Often during the rainy season, incidents of cows sitting on main roads and highways come to light and the cattle also suffer accidents. A system is required so that cows are not seen on the streets and for this a decision will be taken to increase the amount and honorarium for Gaushalas (cow shelters). Arrangements will be ensured for cattle with the best management.”

The committee will also invite cow shelters for a meeting and ask for suggestions for the smooth implementation of the rules.
