Uttar Pradesh deploys ambulances for cows

Uttar Pradesh Deputy Chief Minister Keshav Prasad Maurya on Monday flagged off an ambulance service that would cater to cows.Under the ‘Gauvansh Chikitsa Mobile Vans’ service, the ambulance would rescue ill or injured cows and transport them to ‘gau shalas’ or take them for treatment to the veterinary doctor. A “gau seva toll-free number” was also released so that common people can come to the help of such cows. A veterinarian will be present in the ambulance along with an assistant.In addition, a “gau seva toll-free number” has also been released to enable common people to come forward to help the cows. The ambulance service will be run in collaboration with the MNREGA Mazdoor Kalyan Sanghathan. Mazdoor Kalyan Sanghathan is an organization that claims to work for the welfare of the labourers and others employed in the informal sector. The organization has a presence in 5 states.According to the brochure released by Mr. Rai, his organisation plans to take action against those people who abandon their cows once they stop giving milk, and also against municipality officials if cows are forced to eat polythene or plastic items dumped on the streets.A similar project was a few days ago reported in Khargone district of Madhya
Pradesh, which is also ruled by the BJP. In 2015, 10 such cow ambulances were also deployed for service by an industrialist-cum-social worker
