Chief Minister Chouhan said that we have a proposal to keep voluntary organizations in the forefront for the operation of gaushalas and to obtain minimum amount in the form of gau-grass for better resources in these gaushalas. He said that we will not depend on gau-grass alone. Assistance of Panch Parmeshwar and schemes of other related departments will also be taken for the operation and construction of new gaushalas.
