In view of the problems being faced by the farmers due to unclaimed animals, the Yogi government is preparing to start the Go Sanctuary scheme for its permanent solution. Initially, there is a plan to set up gaushalas in 200 assembly constituencies. Each Gaushala has a capacity of 5000 or more cows. These big cowsheds will be developed on government vacant land, barren land and pasture. If such land is illegally occupied, it will be removed.
Livestock, Milk Development and Minority Welfare Minister Dharampal Singh said in a special conversation with ‘Amar Ujala’ that the left wing cattle are becoming a problem for the farmers. An action plan has been prepared for a permanent solution to this problem. This will be implemented soon. He said that a model cowshed would be developed in Amla. Such gaushalas will be developed in all the Nyaya Panchayats of the district.
From milk and milk by-products to dung, urine will be commercially used

With the help of MNREGA, Panchayati Raj, Forest and Drinking Water Department, all necessary facilities including fodder, water, boundary wall, shed, animal treatment and human resources will be available here. All kinds of animals will be kept together. The cow’s milk and milk by-products will increase the income of the cow. From milk to cow dung and urine will be used.
Gaushala will run with its own resources
