BJP welcomes rearing of cow, calf at Goa Governor House
Friday November 21, 2014 2:40 PM, IANS

The BJP has welcomed Goa Governor Mridula Sinha's adoption of a cow and a calf, and rearing of animals on Raj Bhavan grounds.

The governor used to practice cow rearing back in her home state Bihar, which she wanted to carry forward in Goa too, Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) state president Vinay Tendulkar told IANS Friday.

"For milk it is good," Tendulkar said, when asked about Sinha's decision to rear the cow and calf.

The Jai Sriram Gosanvardhan Kendra in Nanus village, a cow shelter located around 50 km of Panaji, which has been demanding a ban on cow slaughter in the state, had responded to Sinha's request for a milk-yielding cow by sending her an eight-year-old cow and her calf.

Sinha during a visit to the cow shelter Wednesday has also expressed her desire to perform cow puja everyday at the Raj Bhavan.

"It must be a practice to worship a cow from where she comes," Tendulkar said.

Sinha, a famous litterateur who hails from Bihar's Muzaffarpur district, was appointed as the governor of Goa in August, months after the National Democratic Alliance government was voted to power in New Delhi.
