Lucknow: Cows will not be seen roaming on the roads in UP from January 2024. Yogi government’s Livestock and Dairy Development Minister Dharampal Singh said that earlier the cow used to tremble after seeing the butcher, but now the butcher is trembling after seeing the cow. From today till December 31, the Yogi government will run a special campaign to send the cows roaming freely to the ‘Cow Conservation Centre’.

6943 cow conservation centers in UP

The government says that now after two months of campaign, people will not have to face this problem. There are currently 6943 cow protection centres in UP. In which 12,11,247 cows have been kept. Despite this, cows are visible on the roads. After the formation of the Yogi government in UP in 2017, strict action was taken against illegal slaughterhouses. The result was that cows came to the roads and fields. Despite strictness, cows are roaming on the streets. According to government figures, currently, about 2.5 lakh cows are on the streets. However, the government also believes that in reality, this number is more than double. Yogi government created cow shelters, in which the cows roaming freely were taken there, but the problem has not been completely eradicated yet. Despite strictness, cows are roaming on the streets.

How does cow smuggling and cow slaughter happen?

There are two types of crimes committed against cows. The first type of criminals slaughter the cattle and use it for food. The second type of criminal commits cruelty towards cattle. There are many expert drivers for cow smuggling and they smuggle more on some routes. Gangster action is taken against those who repeatedly do such things. There are some hotspots where such Cases come up. In some cases the religious atmosphere is bad. There the police take action under more serious sections. Smuggling takes place on the Indo-Bangladesh border. In some places, they are carted away. People transporting cattle supply it to some meat factories in the wrong way. If the cows are not suitable for agriculture and are not milch, then some people sell them. People earn big money from cow smuggling. Slaughter of cattle is completely banned. From time to time police conduct operations.

Now before the Lok Sabha elections, the Yogi government is going to open more cow shelters, so that stray animals do not become an issue in the elections. By running a city-to-city campaign, the cows roaming the streets are being taken to cow shelters.
