Replying to the demand for grant of funds for his department, Animal Husbandry Minister Lakhan Singh Yadav of Congress told the House that "all stray cows would be shifted to 'gaushalas' in the next 16-18 months".
The chief minister, accompanied by Development Minister Gopal Rai, visited 'Shree Krishna Gaushala' funded by the Delhi government and municipal corporation in Bawana town in North West district. Talking to reporters after his visit, Kejriwal said the Aam Aadmi Party does not seek votes in the name of cows.
Salma, 33, says she takes in old, injured and abandoned cattle at the guashala. It began in August 2007, when she found an injured bull and brought it home. Her cow shelter came to be known as ‘Muslim Gaushala’.
