    • Chandigarh, Nov 6- Haryana Government has requested the states of Rajasthan, Punjab, Delhi and Uttar Pradesh to launch stray cattle-free programme in their respective states so that unwanted migration of such cattle could be prevented effectively in the state.
    • In a demi-official letter addressed to the Chief Minister’s of Rajasthan, Punjab, Delhi and Uttar Pradesh, Mr Manohar Lal informed that sometime large number of stray cattle enters in Haryana, which shares a large part of its boundary with these states, from other side of border. This has adversely affected the stray cattle-free programme of the state.

    • Referring the stray cattle-free programme launched in the state, the Chief Minister said that it had been launched to tackle the problem of stray cattle by way of rehabilitating these animals in the gaushalas, nandishalas, gau-grah and cattle ponds at various places in the state. The government has shifted more than 90 per cent stray cattle to these centres and provided them a better environment to live in. This move had not only made the roads animal free and lowered the incidences of accidents but also prevented the loss to our farmers as these animals were also damaging their crops.
