Kundapur: Cow shelters being opened beginning from 25 A category temples


Daijiworld Media Network - Kundapur (SP)

Kundapur, Feb 17: The state government has taken up an initiative to provide shelter to cows, beginning with 25 A category temples falling within state muzrai department. These shelters will be aiming at conservation of indigenous breeds of cattle, cattle which may be abandoned by people who are unable to look them after, abandoned sick cattle, cattle that are left on their own etc.

Muzrai minister Kota Srinivas Pooojary, said that this scheme had been envisaged when the BJP government was ruling the state but it had been scrapped after the term of the then government ended. He said that these shelters will come up under the old scheme for protection of indigenous breeds of cattle, for purposes like pure milk, manure for agriculture etc.


Kota Srinivas Poojary

After the current scheme of performing mass marriages becomes a reality, the cow shelters will be installed, it is learnt. In the twin-districts, such shelters will come up at Kollur Goddess Mookambika temple where a cow shelter already exists, Madarti Goddess Durgaparameshwari temple, Kateel Goddess Durgaparameshwari temple, Kukke Lord Subrhamanya temple etc.

Under the scheme, muzrai department will take into possession ten acres of government land in places where it opens cow shelter. The spot need not be very near the temple. The cattle will be provided with fodder, water, medical treatment etc, and the cattle rescued by the police will be given shelter. Initial target is 100 cattle and later it will be expanded subject to availability of facilities. It is planned to use income of respective temples for running the shelters, and discussions are on.

Harish Shetty, president of the executive committee of Kollur temple, noted that the temple is already running a cow shelter and he hailed the government for its decision to protect cattle by opening cow shelters in temples. He asked the government to provide enough space and facilities for the cattle.

In this respect, discussions were held with heads of Maths, sages, religious leaders and experts. Poojary gave a hint that the shelters might be inspired by the cow shelter of Pejawar Math at Neelavar and Go Swarga scheme of Hosanagar Sri Raghaveshwara Swamiji.

    The Karnataka BJP ministers has not learned anything from the past BJP ruled states failure of 'Gaushala' in MP, Chattisgharh and Rajasthan. In Rajastan alone as many as 74,016 cows died in Hingonia gaushala in five years under BJP ruling
    According to the 2012 Livestock Census, India has a cattle population of 190-odd million.

    Based on the years of productivity, around 22-23 million animals would ordinarily be out of the farming system.
    If slaughtering is banned, that means the country is looking at an additional 10 million cattle every year, at an approximate total cost of Rs 22,000 crore to care for them. The question, then, boils down to words: “Inko paaley kaun”?

    The Planning Commission has declared the new poverty line for rural and urban areas. It is Rs 27 a day for rural areas and Rs 30 a day for urban areas.

    Only in PM Modi's India human poverty line is less than Rs30/day and sheltering abandon cow cost Rs60/head/day.
    Is value of the human is less the abandon cows.

    BJP finds money for cow shelters but can't find money to solve crimes, build courts and appoint judges to address the increase in crime and lawlessness.

    Our ministers only talk about cows, temples, Hindu-Muslim and Pakistan.
    What about other priorities like motorable roads, foot paths, decent parking, proper schools, hospitals, employment for educated youth?

    Very good move by b jp Govt. You will find millions of people staying on road without shelter and b jp Govt is least bothered about them. I doubt if shelters being provided for cows is with a planning of transporting them to Gujrat Beef export factories owned by bjp leaders. BJP is not allowing consuming beef in the state but supporting bjp exporters to make money. There are reports from various cow shelters countryvide that cows are missing from the shelter home and none know who steals the cows (no doubt they are being stolen by bjp agents to carry to Gujrat).

    Good and sensible move.
    Since Cow's are worshiped by them, shelters for Cows are being opened in Temples.
