Rajasthan Chief Minister Vasundhara Raje on Friday instructed the Animal Husbandry Department to set up a cow research centre in the state to “improve their breed” and to “protect” and “promote” them. The CM also asked the department to expedite the process of setting up a cow sanctuary in Bikaner.

To be established as “Kamdhenu Research Centre”, the research centre will be affiliated to Rajasthan University of Veterinary and Animal Sciences (RAJUVAS), Bikaner. Officials said the CM, who was chairing a meeting with top officials of Animal Husbandry and Gaupalan departments, emphasised that research be conducted especially on Rathi, Tharparkar and Sahiwal breeds.

Kunji Lal Meena, secretary in the Animal Husbandry and Gaupalan departments, said the research centre will be one of its kind in the state. “RAJUVAS University has been instructed to set up the centre within the campus. The emphasis will be on breeding the indigenous bovine varieties,” Meena told The Indian Express.

RAJUVAS Vice-Chancellor A K Gehlot was instructed to come up with a project. Meena said that while the state has livestock research stations — in Bikaner, Jaisalmer, Udaipur, Hanumangarh, Chittorgarh and Jhalawar — the Kamdhenu Centre will be different as it will focus solely on cows.

    It is the right moment that Cow and Cattle cremation centres are established under Ministry of Cows amd Cattle in the centre and state govts to moniter proper cremation for the sacred Kamadhenu. Every year annual death ceremonies must be held, each cow or bull or buffalo must be given names. The animals horoscopes tolt;br/gt;Be made and kept as record in the ministry, sensus must be taken every year so that mot even a single cow or cattle is left unnoticed. Each village must hv a veternary hospital. Then we will have emplyment for millions of han beings and one day India will proud become a Cow country.

          We will overtake Muslims in going back. Muslims can go back a little more than 1500 years. But we can go to any extant. Because our ancient culture starts from Brahman.

            The Rajasthan Govt. should plan to better control its exploding potion, it should plan to improve its disastrous management of fast disappearing water resources and green cover, it should plan on preventing child marriages and the enormous corruption in government. The list is endless. BUT IT SEEMS THAT COWS HAVE PRIORITY OVER HUMAN BEINGS IN RAJASTHAN.lt;br/gt;THE BJP GOVERNMENT IS GOING TO VOTE ITSELF OUT OF POWER.
