The office bearers of gaushalas of the area have sought financial assistance from the state government for the care of abandoned cows and calves by the general public and dairy farmers in particular.

Organizers of gaushalas claimed that donations to their organizations have come down after the government implemented a scheme to provide financial assistance to registered gaushalas by levying cow cess on electricity bills. Further, the amount of Rs 30 per animal provided by way of cess was not sufficient, he regretted.

Amargarh MLA Professor Jaswant Singh Gajjanmajra – who handed over a check of Rs 58,000 to the cow shelter organizers from the cow cess fund collected by the Ahmedgarh Municipal Council – assured that the AAP government was committed to supporting the organizations running gaushalas in the state.

Gajjanamajra said, “Though we have not received any concrete information from the government on the matter so far, we will try to explore other options, such as getting grants from Rajya Sabha members from adjoining areas under the MPLAD scheme. ” To persuade the corporate houses of the area to adopt Gaushalas as part of CSR (Corporate Social Responsibility).

Sukhjinder Gandhi, an office-bearer of the Jagera Road Gaushala, said a delegation led by Jaigopal Goyal and Surinder Kurdchapa had sought Gajanmajra’s intervention to seek grants for the care of 1,300 cows sheltered in the gaushala.

The organizers alleged that the cow cess scheme launched by the government instead of easing the situation has increased the financial constraints. Sukhjinder Gandhi said, “Donations to gaushalas have come down after the government announced to provide financial assistance through cow cess, while at the same time, the cost of inputs including fodder, medicines and labor charges have increased manifold,” Sukhjinder Gandhi expressed regret. The amount of Rs 30 per animal was also not sufficient to support the sanitation expenditure.
