Govt withdraws ‘sterilisation of stray bulls’ order

Thursday, 14 October 2021 | Staff Reporter | Bhopal

The State government took a 'U-tun’ on its order of sterilisation of stray bulls as a part of bovine breed improvement programme in Madhya Pradesh, within few hours.

The order was withdrawn after Bhopal MP Pragya Singh Thakur said she feared that it was an attempt to ‘terminate govansh’ (cows).

Earlier, Pragya Thakur had said she had spoken to Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan to immediately stop the programme, and also related her views on the matter to animal husbandry Minister Prem Singh Patel. The two had assured her that they will look into the issue.

The MP said, “We address cows as Nandini and mother, while there is a conspiracy to terminate govansh (cows) in Madhya Pradesh. I was deeply saddened after seeing the order, which aims at destroying govansh completely. We call cows mother and Nandini, and the order aims at terminating desi cows by sterilising bulls."
