Bilaspur: In a room in Panchayat Bhawan in Bilaspur district of Chhattisgarh, 45 cows have died in a room. District Collector of Bilaspur district, Summary Mittar gave information about this incident on Saturday.
Summary Mittar informed that the death of cows has been reported in the Medpar Gram Panchayat under Takhatpur development block of the district.
About 60 cows were kept locked in the old panchayat building of the village. When the smell spread there, the villagers informed the local authorities about it.
On the information of the villagers, cattle doctors arrived at the scene. By the time officers reached there, 45 of the 60 cows had died.
Mitter told that the post-mortem of the cows has received information that the cows died of suffocation. The condition of 15 cows is stable at this time. Dead cows are buried after post mortem.
Mittar said that the district administration taking this incident seriously, has registered a case under Section 13 of the Animal Cruelty Act and Section 429 of the IPC.
Apart from this, a committee has been constituted for investigation under the chairmanship of Additional District Magistrate level officer. In this, strict action will be taken against those who are found guilty.
Senior state officials said that Chief Minister Bhupesh Baghel has taken seriously the incident of death of cows in Medpar village. He has instructed the District Magistrate of Bilaspur to take action against those responsible for this incident. Baghel said that this is an unfortunate incident. Here, the main opposition party of the state, Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), has said that the government is talking about the air about the cow.
State BJP President Vishnudev Sai has said that it has become clear from this fresh case of death of cattle that the Congress government of the state, giving the slogan of Narva-Garuva-Ghurwa-Bari and beating the Gau-Dhan Nyay Yojana Pukhta is not even able to make arrangements. This series of deaths of cow and money will be costly for the state government.
Vishnudev Sai has said that not being able to protect the cow-dynasty is an indication of the anti-agrarian character of the state government. Overall, the Chief Minister is demonstrating his dual political character by playing the political gimmick of ‘Roka-Chheka’ and Gau-Dhan Justice Scheme. He is talking only air and air in the name of protecting cow and money.
