Governor selects cow to be housed at her official residence


VALPOI: First it was Laloo Prasad Yadav and his cowsheds in his official New Delhi Bungalow. Now it is Goa Governor Mridula Sinha who has built a cowshed at the Governor’s official residence Raj Bhavan underlining that Bihar politicians – and now even Governors – cannot do without their cowsheds even when they occupy official State residences.

Claiming to have great interest in cows ever since her parents had domesticated cattle, the Governor on Wednesday, after performing a pooja of the cow at the Jaishree Ram Govansh Kendra Valpoi, selected a cow to be taken to Raj Bhavan and placed at the ‘Ghota ghar’. According to Kendra sources an eight-year-old cow and her calf have been identified and will be delivered to Raj Bhavan.

She also gave an assurance that she would request Chief Minister Laxmikant Parsekar to allot some funds to the Kendra to assist it in looking after stray cattle.

Kendra President Hanumant Parob said that the Kendra has been working to protect cattle since 2008 and alleged that though the State government had promised to allot some funds to finance them, the Kendra had not received any government assistance over the past two years.

Kendra in-charge Laxman Joshi said that there are 252 cattle at the Kendra.

Born in Muzaffarpur in Bihar, Sinha, was appointed the Governor of Goa in August, just months after the National Democratic Alliance (NDA) came to power at the Centre. 

Until August 2014 Sinha was a member of the national executive of the Bharatiya Janata Party and in-charge of the BJP Mahila Morcha during the BJP’s campaign for 2014 general elections.
