Aam Admi Party asked Rajasthan Chief Minister Vasundhara Raje to resign on Thursday following death of hundreds of cows at government-run Hingonia goshala, claiming she knew of the poor state but did not move to improve the situation. AAP leader Ashutosh said that the High Court was told by government officials that "the chief minister has been informed about the poor situation in the goshala on February 29. After which the high court issued detailed guidelines to improve the situation at the goshala, but despite all, hundreds of cows have died due to poor arrangements," he said.
Ashutosh, following his visit to the goshala with other party leaders, demanded the resignation of Raje. "BJP does dirty politics in the name of cows and it is very disappointing that several hundred cows have died in a BJP-ruled state and what is more disappointing is that chief minister has no time to visit the goshala," he told reporters in Jaipur. Meanwhile, PCC president Sachin Pilot said the government should hand over the goshala to private and experienced entities to save the cows from dying. "The animal husbandry minister has expressed the government's inability to run the guashala therefore the government should rope in private organisations who serve cows in order to save lives of cows," he said.
"The BJP government is totally insensitive, be it differently-abled people or cows," he said. More than 100 cows have reportedly died at the cowshed in Jaipur. The Raje government has been criticised by Congress, VHP, and Bajrang Dal over the death of cows. Congress has alleged that 100 cows have died due to "mismanagement and lack of facilities" at the goshala while VHP has claimed that more than 500 cows died due to the "inhuman behaviour" of Raje government towards them.
