The Central Government on Monday submitted its report in Supreme Court on cow protection and smuggling of cattle across India- Bangladesh border.
Centre in its report to the apex court said that each cow and its progeny across India should get a Unique Identification Number for tracking.
“Each district should have a shelter home of capacity of atleast 500 abandoned animals. This will help in reducing smuggling ,” the Centre stated in the report.
The Central Government told the apex court that a Committee headed by Joint Secretary, Home Ministry was formed, which has given these recommendations.
Meanwhile, the Dalit community in Gujarat has demanded that every cow be now given an 'Aadhar card' and there should be fodder depot at all villages to ensure that the bovines don't feed on plastic. Surendranagar-based dalit rights activist Natu Parmar is preparing to host a mega sammelan on the theme of 'Jiv Matra, Karuna Ne Patra (Living creatures need compassion) on May 10. Dalits who have been fighting for their rights, especially after four youths skinning dead cows were brutally flogged in Una, will attend the function. A life-size prototype of cow with huge quantity of plastic in its stomach will also be unveiled at the occasion.
