Certificates to cow carriers to check lynching in UP

Lucknow: In an attempt to check incidents of mob lynching and cow vigilantism, Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath on Tuesday said that the Gau Seva Aayog should provide the person transporting cows with a certificate and take responsibility for his security.

The Chief Minister said that those carrying proper certificates while transporting cows would be given police protection.

At a meeting of the Gau Sewa Aayog, Yogi said that the Aayog should also check illegal smugglings of cows and make regular inspections of cow shelters.

He said that the security and safety of cows were of utmost importance and cow shelters should be made self-reliant in terms of finances.

“The production of compost and preservation of cow urine should be done so that these can later be sold. Other by-products can also be sold,” he pointed out.

Yogi Adityanath also underlined the need for improving the breed of cattle and said that this would prove beneficial in the years to come.
