Haemoglobin level of patients using “gaumutra” does not fall even after chemotherapy; cows are the only animal that inhale as well as exhale oxygen; ghee made of cow’s milk contains 47 per cent oxygen; “gaumutra (cow’s urine)” in sugarcane field will ensure longer, thicker and sweeter sugarcane and yield more sugar; and cow is the only animal which takes oxygen and gives back oxygen, BJP MPs said in the Rajya Sabha on Friday.
The remarks were made while discussing a private resolution moved by DMK’s T Siva, seeking steps for the protection of indigenous cattle breed. Congress MP BK Hariprasad supported the resolution. He said there should not be any discrimination against buffaloes or bulls.
In the resolution, T Siva sought amendment in the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Act 1960, to exempt bulls from application of provisions that restrict their training for various purposes. Sive suggested replacing tractors with cattles for ploughing and transportation.
Nine of 10 MPs who spoke on the issue supported the resolution. Congress MP Jairam Ramesh opposed it, saying the resolution was aimed at Jallikattu.
BJP MP Basavaraj Patil claimed that if a cow carcass is buried, its “chemical action” is worth fertilizer amounting to Rs 8,000.
“If cow urine is used in sugarcane farms, the sugarcane will be longer, thicker and sweeter, and will yield more sugar,” BJP MP Meghraj Jain said.
He claimed that an experiment done at Mumbai’s Tata Cancer Hospital had found that haemoglobin level of patients using “gaumutra” does not fall even after chemotherapy.
