At a time when Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chauhan has been criticised for making giving high-ranking political portfolios to sadhus and sanyasis, there is a fresh demand from the cabinet minister Akhileshwaranand for a cow ministry to be constituted.
Akhileshwaranand is the Chairman of the Cow Protection Board and was promoted to cabinet rank last week.
He had said that he deserved the promotion because of the position he held in Madhya Pradesh Cow Protection Board (MPCPB).
He has now made the request to constitute a cow ministry.
Not surprisingly, Twitter quickly came up with sharp reactions to the demand and underlined the need to address more urgent problems in the state.
In recent past, there have been other voices in support of having a cow ministry as well.
