BJP in Punjab on Saturday said the state government is considering providing free electricity to all the ‘gaushalas’ (cowsheds).
“All the 472 Gaushalas in the state would have access to free power and it will be historic, state BJP chief Kamal Sharma, who met chief minister Parkash Singh Badal in this regard, claimed.
Sharma also took up the matter of land of ‘Gauchar’, ‘Gau Charan’ and ‘Gaushalas’ being illegally occupied by the land mafia and urged the CM to issue necessary instructions in this regard.
He claimed that taking note of the matter, Badal has directed officials to constitute a committee to free the land of Gauchar, Gau Charan and Gaushala’s from encroachers.
Sharma said the economic condition of the Gaushalas in the state is very bad and every possible help should be extended.
