Shivraj Singh Chouhan, the Chief Minister of Madhya Pradesh, said on Saturday that cows, along with their manure and urine, might help build the country’s economy.
“Without cows or oxen, a lot of work would be impossible to complete.” As a result, they are extremely important. “If a suitable system is put in place, cows, their manure, and urine may help develop the economy of the state and the country,” Singh said at a convention of the Indian Veterinary Association’s women’s branch in Bhopal.
“We are doing our utmost to give support,” he continued. And I am confident that we will succeed thanks to the contributions of women in this field. You may make a variety of essential compounds from cow dung and urine, ranging from insecticides to medicines.”

The state of Madhya Pradesh is home to the country’s first cow sanctuary, which was founded by RSS founder Mohan Bhagwat.
Last year, the state’s BJP government announced the formation of a “gau cabinet” (cow cabinet) comprised of ministers from six departments who would seek to protect cows and promote cow products in the state.
The Congress manifesto for the 2018 Madhya Pradesh Assembly elections concentrated on cows, with the grand old party promising to create gaushalas in every panchayat and begin commercial gau mutra manufacturing (cow urine). The Congress has vowed to establish a slew of new cow sanctuaries and fund their upkeep and maintenance.
In 2018, Tripura Chief Minister Biplab Deb advocated for the rearing of cows as a source of employment for the youth, claiming that, unlike setting up large industries, where “one must invest Rs 10,000 crore to employ 2000 people,” giving 10,000 cows to 5,000 families would allow people to begin earning in “six months.”
He had declared that the state government would start a programme to distribute cows to 5000 families to address malnutrition and create jobs in the state.
