Chhattisgarh will be home to a cow sanctuary

RAIPUR: Chhattisgarh government will set up the state’s first cow sanctuary at Jhalar village in Bemetara district, state agriculture minister Brijmohan Agrawal announced in Vidhan Sabha.

Replying to a debate on budgetary demands of his department, the minister said details of the proposed cow sanctuary were being worked out.

Agrawal said state government was keen to promote organic cultivation and it plans to take it up in an area of more than 20,000 hectares. Ruling BJP legislator Devji Bhai Patel raised the issue of migration of people from tribal areas because of fear of Maoists.

The government maintained that there were displacement but they had not migrated.

Patel sought to know district wise details of migration. However, home minister Ramsewak Paikra's reply did not satisfy the senior BJP leader, who alleged the administration was not aware of the ground reality.
