Animals on road have been a menace for every citizen. To better the situation, UP Animal Husbandry minister SP Singh Bhagel has offered Rs 6000 to raise 200 cows in five bigha land. Government will give money at a rate of Rs 30 per cow. The amount turns out to be Rs 1.8 lac per month.
Baghel was addressing BJP held Kisan Morcha at Uday Garden situated at Agra road, Aligarh. Heads, farmers, general secretaries, office bearers from 16 districts came to the event. Baghel said, “I feel the pain of farmers, they stay up every night to keep care of the crops. People ask about solutions for the problem of cattle and not electricity, water, roads”. Baghel also said that the problem has a permanent solution and work has begun on it.
10 days back the UP government had decided to bring an additional tax of 0.5 percent as cow welfare cess.
