New Delhi: Akhil Bharatiya Gau Seva Pramukh of the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh Ajit Mahapatra welcomed the government's announcement - Rashtriya Kamadhenu Ayog - Commission for the welfare of the cow and its progeny. In his opinion, if the Commission charts out a good plan it will help in curbing farmer’s suicide and spread right kind of energy by promoting desi cows.
He said, “The Commission on cows is welcome but the government should specify that it is for the welfare of desi cows. The details of the ayog are not yet out but it is important to have such an agency that can spread the values of cow which would lead to the protection of cows – desi and bharatiya gai.”
The states he said are working on cow protection but the work need to be done to educate the farmers on “dependent farming and rural development, for that every village should have at least 5% of people keeping cows at home. They should not just think about milk but use the five elements for development,” he said.
He added, “We need to know that cows give us milk, ghee, dahi, gobar and mutra – which is good for farming and if used can work for welfare of farmers as well. We will see a drop in farmer’s suicide.”
In 2018 the Gau Sewa Cell of RSS visited various temples and mutts on March 31 to spread awareness on the benefits of cow urine and cow dung. They scheduled ‘Gau Jap Mahayagya’ (cow chant ceremony) on the occasion.
Mahapatra said, “the mandirs should only welcome the product of desi cows - it is about the energy it gives.”
He said that government has heard the demand of the Sangh on cow welfare and protection. “Welfare of cows has always been expressed by the sarsanghchalaks – KS Sudershen and Mohan Bhagwat have been very vocal about cow protection. Government has heard their demand.”
