Rajasthan Congress today demanded a judicial inquiry into the alleged irregularities in Hingonia cow shelter leading to deaths of several hundred cows.
“Hundreds of cows are dying in the Hingonia gaushala. The government is claiming of providing crores of budget for fodder, medicines but it appears to be on papers only, PCC President Sachin Pilot said. He alleged that in the name of fodder and medicines, the budget was siphoned off by officials.
“The government is doing nothing but flourishing corruption. After the deaths, changes in the gaushala arrangements have been made just to mislead and the actual situation remains grim,” he said. Pilot demanded that a judicial inquiry be set up to probe the irregularities in the gaushala.
The PCC chief has also asked the party district presidents to organise ‘Gaay Bachao March’ in their respective districts on August 13 to apprise people across the country about the government’s apathy towards the cow.
The Congress has earlier alleged that 100 cows had died due to “mismanagement and lack of facilities” at the state-run cow shelter and VHP had claimed that more than 500 cows had died.
