“In our culture cows hold religious significance. Cow has been given the status of the mother in religious texts, thus from increasing the budget of Haryana Gau Seva Aayog from Rs 40 crore to Rs 400 crore in 2023-24, dedicated efforts are being made by the present State Government for the protection of cattle,” he said.
Earlier, the Chief Minister also visited the Livestock Exhibition. Agriculture and Farmers’ Welfare and Animal Husbandry Minister JP Dalal and BJP state president Om Prakash Dhankhar were present on the occasion.
The Chief Minister informed that under Mukhyamantri Antyodaya Parivar Utthan Yojana, loans have been provided to such families who have shown interest in adopting animal husbandry. He said that under this scheme, this year, the Government aims to increase the income of about two lakh Antyodaya families.
