The newly constituted ‘Gau’ (Cow) cabinet in Madhya Pradesh aims to make the state independent and self-reliant by basing it on the cow, eventually improving and bolstering the economy, according to a report by NDTV.

At Sunday’s virtual meeting, CM Chouhan wished all participants virtually on the festival of Gopasthami, which is dedicated to Lord Krishna and cows. This meeting took place after the CM announced the set-up of a separate ‘cabinet’ for the promotion of the cow last week.
