Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath recently launched a ‘cow ambulance’ in his home state. Now, Maharashtra, too, has adopted the model.
The BJP government in Maharashtra launched an ambulance service for cows keeping in mind the poor health condition of cows in the state.
Of course there are repercussions to it and some are criticizing this initiative. They are of the opinion that ambulance service does not come for aid in emergency situations for human beings, so the government should have taken an initiative for the same instead.
As every story has two sides, talking about positive aspect of this initiative, these ambulances have an emergency number via which they will reach immediately for help.
The “gau chikitsa mobile ambulance” will be used to transport injured bovines to either a “gaushala” or a veterinary hospital. A doctor will always be there in the van with the helper to support and provide first aid.
Keshav Prasad Maurya, Uttar Pradesh Deputy Chief Minister, flagged off ambulances in the state last month and said that now there will be milk flowing from dairies instead of blood from butcher house.
In 2015, the Jharkhand Government initiated this movement and it was inaugurated by Baba Ramdev. Maharashtra has also joined in the league and is providing best of healthcare facilities to old and abandoned cows.
In order for the balance of the natural cycle, humans and animals are directly related. Cows can survive in a world where humans don’t exist, rather in a much better way, but it is impossible to think vice-versa.
