The government has come on the backfoot after the state government’s Animal Husbandry Department’s order for sterilization of poor (useless) bulls of the villages heated up. The government has withdrawn the sterilization order within 24 hours of the protest. In this regard, the Director of Animal Husbandry and Dairying Department, Dr. RK Mehia issued an order on Wednesday.
Let us tell you that MP Pragya Thakur raised the matter in front of Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan, Animal Husbandry Minister Prem Singh Patel and demanded withdrawal of the order. The MP had said that in this way only the cow dynasty will end. He also raised questions on the method of sterilization.
Congress took a jibe
At the same time, after the order to stop sterilization was issued, the Congress took a jibe at the government. Madhya Pradesh Congress spokesperson Narendra Saluja tweeted that what is happening, is the government running or a circus? Weird orders come out in the morning and canceled till evening? First the order to increase the consumption of liquor came out, canceled after the opposition of Congress. And now the order of sterilization of bulls was also canceled after the opposition of Congress. That is why bureaucracy is on target.
Pragya said – sterilization conspiracy of bulls, will demand investigation from CM
On withdrawing the order of sterilization of Desi bull from the department, MP Pragya Singh Thakur said that I think this order is an internal conspiracy. We need to be careful of this. Indigenous cows cannot be destroyed. The MP said that she would demand the Chief Minister to conduct an inquiry into the matter.

On 29 September 2021, orders were issued by the Animal Husbandry Department to the districts to ensure sterilization of inferior bulls. In the order, instructions were given to conduct sterilization campaign from October 4 to October 23. According to government figures, there are about 12 lakh bulls in the state.
