Governor Ram Naik, who accompanied him, talked about the changing face of Uttar Pradesh and stressed on research work.
The chief minister, who visited ‘Hasanand Gochar’ in Vrindavan on Sunday, conducted ‘pujan’ amidst chanting of ‘mantras’. He attended ‘hawan’ and participated in ‘gau-pujan’ in the presence of noted seers from Mathura and Vrindavan.
He was apprised of the planned ‘Mahamana Gau Gram Yojna’ in which 2,000 cows are to be taken care of. Plans are afoot to supply milk, ghee, milk products,cow urine and cow dung to Delhi and other major cities. About 108 villages around Vrindavan are also to be developed under ‘Mahamana Gram Yojna’.
Addressing the gathering, Yogi said, “There has been an effective check on cow slaughter and cow smuggling since the BJP came to power in the state. The products derived from cows are beneficial for mankind and society should conserve these animals ,” he said, adding there should be more publicity about benefits of organic fertilizers and ‘panchgavya’ (products from cows).
Addressing another gathering at the Deendayal Veterinary University and Cow Research Center in Mathura, the chief minister claimed that if seven Ms were taken into consideration while formulating the industrial policy, it would certainly spur economic growth.
“These 7 Ms are Man, Money, Management, Material, Machinery, Motive Power and Market,” he said.
The chief minister inaugurated various schemes worth R195 crore out of the total outlay of R410 crore for Braj area and laid foundation stone for development schemes worth R 214.15 crores.
“Pandit Deen Dayal Upadhyaya was a rare leader who saw the country in the correct perspective instead of looking at it with a western view and so his ideology lives even after his death. He was of the view that our religious destinations should not only be places of worship but centres of social awakening,” Yogi said, unveiling the statue of the BJP ideologue at the veterinary university.
He called upon scientists in the university to work for increasing productivity and said that stray cattle posed a problem because of owners abandoning them.
Governor Ram Naik welcomed the changing face of the state where schemes worth crores were being launched.“The universities are now getting funds, so they should work for society. Pandit Deen Dayal Upadhyaya propounded ‘Antyodaya’ to talk about the last man awaiting development. We need to follow his principles,” Naik said.
