Chief Minister Vijay Rupani today called for developing Gujarat as a Non-Violent State, true to its tradition of ‘Jeev Daya’ towards all living beings. Talking to trustees and representatives of Panjrapols (cattle pounds) and social
organisations working in the field of cow conservation from across the state over the 7 th edition of his ‘Mokla Mane’ programme at his residence here, he recalled that prominent citizens have been looking after the abandoned unproductive cows from their own resources for ages.
Mr. Rupani assured the Panjrapol representatives that their demand for municipal corporations and municipalities bearing the cost of cattle pounds’ looking after stray cattle will be considered. It is not just the duty of the overnment and Panjrapols but the entire society to look after the abandoned cattle.
Instead of procuring fodder from far-off rain-fed places, he stressed the need for locally growing fodder with minimum use of water through modern management techniques by Panjrapols, with the help of rooftop solar panels, wind turbines and sprinkler irrigation. Mr. Rupani talked about preservation and popularisation of the Gir-Kankrej cows through the government’s Nandi Ghar Yojna.
Mr. Rupani has been talking to the representatives of the most neglected sections of the society under his ‘Mokla Mane’ programme, with open heart and open mind to solve their typical problems. It was his 7 th such meeting today.
