Jaipur: Opposition parties have alleged that over 100 cows have died due to "mismanagement and lack of facilities" at the gaushala. Facing flak over death of cows at a State-run shelter due to alleged negligence, the Rajasthan government on Saturday swung into action, with its Minister Rajpal Singh Shekhawat inspecting the Hingonia cow shelter.
The Minister, flanked by officials of Municipal Corporation, reviewed the condition and said he will apprise the Chief Minister of the situation.
The Congress as well as the VHP targeted the BJP government in Rajasthan for the “poor” condition of cow shelters in the State and demanded a rescue campaign for sick cows.
The Congress on Friday alleged that 100 cows had died due to “mismanagement and lack of facilities” at the gaushala (cow shelter) while the VHP claimed that more than 500 cows had died due to the “inhuman behaviour” of the Vasundhara Raje government. The State government has refuted these allegations.
