Under the ‘Gauvansh Chikitsa Mobile Vans’ service, the ambulance would rescue ill or injured cows and transport them to ‘gau shalas’ or take them for treatment to the veterinary doctor. A “gau seva toll-free number” was also released so that common people can come to the help of such cows. A veterinarian will be present in the ambulance along with an assistant, said the media sources.

In a country were a man from Orissa named Dana Manjhi in August 2016 was made to walk 12 kms with her wife’s dead body for cremation because he was not able to arrange an ambulance van, such kind of services for an animal is like adding soul to the injury to the less fortunate improvise section of the public.

In its initial phase, the service will be first available in Lucknow, Gorakhpur, Varanasi, Mathura and Allahabad. The ambulance service is being run in collaboration with the MNREGA Mazdoor Kalyan Sanghathan, an organisation that says it works for labourers and others employed in the informal sector. Its president Sanjay Rai said the organisation has a presence in five states.

According to the brochure released by Mr. Rai, his organisation plans to take action against those people who abandon their cows once they stop giving milk, and also against municipality officials if cows are forced to eat polythene or plastic items dumped on the streets, reads a quote from a report published in an English vernacular.

This is not the first time that a state government has undertaken such a misuse of public money, a few days ago reported in Khargone district of Madhya Pradesh, which is also ruled by the BJP. In 2015, 10 such cow ambulances were also deployed for service by an industrialist-cum-social worker.
