PGSC Chairman submits memorandum to Governor for declaring cow as National Animal
Demands complete ban on cow slaughtering and uniform law in all the states
Chandigarh, September 18, 2021: Punjab Gau Sewa Commission Chairman Sachin Sharma led delegation, on Saturday, submitted a memorandum to the Governor of Punjab here at Raj Bhawan for recommending the case to the President and Prime Minister of India for declaring cow as the national animal.
Addressing the media outside the Raj Bhawan, Chairman Mr. Sharma informed, "we have demanded that by amending the Article 48 of Chapter 4 of the Constitution of India, a complete ban should be imposed on cow slaughter and a uniform law should be enacted in all the states in this regard."
A provision of death penalty should be made for the killing of the bovine, reads the memorandum, further stating that Government Gaushalas should be constructed with state-of-the-art facilities after taking strict steps towards the protection of the cows.
The Chairman categorically added that during the deliberation in a congenial atmosphere, the Governor was urged for recommend the case to the President and Prime Minister of India declaring cow as the National Animal and the governor assures every possible help in this regard.
The chairman apprised the Governor that the cow is the backbone of Indian culture and reflects the spiritual faith of Sanatan Dharma, but the bovine is forced to live by eating garbage.
Apart from this, the land mafia has also occupied a large part of the land in the country, due to which bovines are not being given permanent shelter, which results in bovine-people confrontation and accidents every day.
Similarly, there is a ruthless killing of cows in the country every day, but due to lack of strict law, cow smugglers and killers are able to easily escape.
Ramesh Chandar Garg, Trustee, Dandi Swami Gaudham Ludhiana and OSD Dr. Deepak Ghai also accompanied the delegation.
