CHANDIGARH: While continuing its drive to protect the cows, the Haryana Government will soon enact  a stringent law to  punish those found abandoning their milch cows.

The Haryana Chief Minister, Mr Manohar Lal, who was addressing a press conference here today  said that the State government has already enacted 'Gauvansh Sanrakshan and Gausamvardhan' Act for  protection of cows. Also, the Government has tagged   cattle in the Gaushalas as it would help in knowing their location. He said that similarly, tagging of cattle kept in the houses would also be carried out so that these are not    abandoned in any situation. Those found abandoning their cattle, a fine of Rs. 5,000  would be imposed, he added.

While seeking support of the people in effective implementation of the drive to protect the livestock, the Chief Minister appealed to the people not to abandon their cattle and keep them in their houses as it is not easy for the government alone to protect them.

Director General of Information, Public Relations and  Languages Department, Mr Sameer Pal Srow and Media Advisor to Chief Minister, Mr Amit Arya were also present on this occasion.
