Countering the Bharatiya Janata Party's (BJP) allegations on stopping the procurement of cow urine, Chhattisgarh Chief Minister Bhupesh Baghel on Wednesday said the project was started on a pilot mode in different districts.
The bovine urine needs to be converted into fertilizers and for medicinal use on plants. Several women self-help groups have been imparted training and this is continuing slowly, he told the media at the Swami Vivekananda Airport here.
Baghel said he was on a visit to Jharkhand as chief guest of the concluding day of a two-day event to mark the International Day of the World’s Indigenous Peoples.
On the Tiranga yatra being conducted by the Congress, the Chief Minister said it is a party programme. Apart from reaching out to the people on the party’s ideology, government schemes and programmes were also being highlighted. It would in the long run benefit the party.
Congratulating Nitish Kumar for taking oath as Chief Minister of Bihar for the eighth time with Tejashwi Yadav as his deputy, Baghel said this was an indication of change in 2024.
He said once strong allies of the BJP such as Akali Dal in Punjab, Shiv Sena in Maharashtra and now JD(U) in Bihar were slowly wanting to quit the National Democratic Alliance (NDA). More parties were waiting to leave, he said.
On ex-Chief Minister Raman Singh’s comment on the Godhan Nyay Scheme, Baghel said he sees nothing but corruption because he had been indulging in it for 15 years.
