(Photo by Ganesh Shirsekar)BJP leader Subramanian Swamy on Sunday called for a cess to be imposed for funding gaushalas across the country.
If we ask to pay Re 1 on petrol for gaushalas, the country will be flooded with money.” Swamy was speaking at a national conference for cow protection organised by the Virat Hindustan Sangam at the Bombay Stock Exchange on Dalal Street on Sunday.
Minister of State for Home Affairs Hansraj Ahir, among the dignitaries at the conference, said it is difficult for farmers to afford old cows which stop milking.
Swami Arihant, founder of Urjaa World Foundation, proposed that compulsory chapters be introduced in school curricula on cow protection.
Swamy said that his government has two more years and he is hopeful that the private bill he introduced in Rajya Sabha to give death penalty to cow slaughterers will come through.
