Yogi Adityanath Government to Launch Cow 'Safaris' in 24 Districts


22 December 2017

Lucknow: The Aditya Nath Yogi government will launch "cow safaris" in at least 24 districts of Uttar Pradesh. These bovine expeditions follow a lion safari begun by the earlier SP government headed by Akhilesh Yadav. However, what the BJP government refers to as safaris are actually sanctuaries for cows which the government plans to develop on the lines of Kanha Upvan on land freed under an ongoing statewide anti-encroachment drive.

These "cow safaris" will be set up in at least 24 districts, mainly around metro cities and in Bundelkhand region. The concept was mooted by chief minister Aditya Nath Yogi in the UP assembly. "We will make grazing grounds for cows. Hum gai ke sanrakshan ke liye abhyaran banayenge (We will launch cow safaris for the protection of cows)," said the CM.

Animal husbandry minister S P Singh Baghel said cow shelters on the lines of Kanha Upvan will be started under each of the 16 municipal corporations in the state, each with a capacity to house 1,000 cattle. A similar facility will also start under each of the seven districts of Bundelkhand.
