Jaipur: To draw the Rajasthan government’s attention to the lumpy skin ailment, BJP MLA Suresh Singh Rawat brought a cow to the Rajasthan Assembly on Monday. Before the minister could get to the assembly premises, the cow ran away.
At that time, when the cow bolted from the area, dragging the man holding onto the rope that it was tethered to, Rawat was speaking to the media outside the assembly gate. In a tweet reacting to Congress’s Govind Singh Dotasra, Rawat said, “Even the cow is angry with this insensitive government.”
The MLA, who was holding a stick, informed reporters that although the state administration is in a deep sleep, cows are afflicted with lumpy skin conditions. “To draw attention towards lumpy disease, I brought a cow to the Vidhan Sabha (campus”),” Rawat said.
According to the animal husbandry department data on Monday, 59,027 cattle have so far died because of lumpy skin disease and 13,02,907 have been affected.
