New Delhi: Those who search votes in the name of cows should also provide fodder to them, Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal said on Friday after he was told during his visit to Bawana that the BJP-led MCD has not yet released funds to a gaushala for two years in the area.
The chief minister, also accompanied by Development Minister Gopal Rai, visited ‘Shree Krishna Gaushala’ funded by the Delhi government and municipal corporation in Bawana town in North West district.
Representatives of gaushala told the chief minister that MCD, mainly ruled by the BJP, has not released any sort share of funds from last years due to which they have to face problems.
Kejriwal also acknowledged that the Delhi government has already released its share of funds to gaushala, but MCD has not given its share yet. They get votes because of cows, but they refuse to give fodder to cows, which is not right. There should not be dirty politics over cows,” he told reporters without taking name of anyone.
By Giving response to a question raised from reporters, Kejriwal said he will visit gaushalas in Haryana next week. The AAP is gearing up to contest Lok Sabha polls in the neighbouring state.
Minister Gopal Rai has said that the AAP government recently introduced a policy for birds and animals. A gaushala in Ghuman Hera area will be “modernised”, he also added.
Shree Krishna Gaushala is spread over 36 acres. It has the 7,552 cattle against the total capacity of 7,740.
