After the objection of BJP MP from Bhopal Pragya Thakur, the Madhya Pradesh government ordered to cancel the sterilization campaign of bulls which was going on since October 4. Pragya Thakur said that this is some internal conspiracy, it should be investigated.
Bhopal: The Madhya Pradesh government on Wednesday withdrew the bull sterilization campaign following criticism by BJP MP Pragya Singh Thakur. Pragya Thakur had termed this campaign as an attempt to eliminate indigenous cows.
Shortly after the bull sterilization campaign was canceled on Wednesday, BJP MP from Bhopal Lok Sabha seat Pragya Singh Thakur raised suspicion that the sterilization campaign was carried out as part of a conspiracy to eliminate the indigenous cows.
Thakur told reporters in Bhopal on Wednesday night, “The sterilization of bulls was being done and I came to see his order. I immediately acted on it and informed the Chief Minister (Shivraj Singh Chouhan) and the State Animal Husbandry Minister (Prem Singh Patel) and today that order was revoked.
He said, ‘It seems to me that somewhere this (order for sterilization of bulls) is some internal conspiracy and there is a need to be careful, because no one can and should never destroy the indigenous cows. ‘
Thakur said, ‘How this happened, it is a matter of investigation. I will urge the Chief Minister to inquire into this and get it done and since when, why and for what is this happening? This indigenous cow, why so much atrocities against it? Such orders should never happen again.
Meanwhile, the state animal husbandry department on Wednesday shared the order to stop the sterilization drive of bulls on its official Twitter handle.

In an order issued by Dr. RK Mehia, Director, Animal Husbandry and Dairying Department, all the sub-operators of the department have been told that the campaign for sterilization of bulls, which started from October 4, has been stopped immediately.
At the same time, the Congress termed the order of the state government as absurd. Congress media coordinator Narendra Saluja said that while on one hand the government talks about cow protection, on the other hand, sterilization of bulls is being done to eliminate indigenous cows.
According to The Hindu, the Animal Husbandry and Dairying Department, in its order issued on September 22, had said, “In view of the increasing population of ‘bad (unproductive) bulls’ in the state, a sterilization drive will be carried out from October 4 to October 23, 2021.” It will be done free of cost.’
An official said that there are an estimated 12 lakh unproductive bulls in the state. The cattle that attack crops on roads, highways and sometimes in villages are mostly male calves or cows, which stop giving milk. Most of them are abandoned by their owners and illegal diaries, as they are no longer of any economic value.
