Gau Mata ki raksha, right? That seems to be the only agenda on Yogi Adityanath’s mind these days. The CM has now cleared a cow welfare cess which can be used to protect stray cows.
In fact, the proposal also suggests that cow sheds or gau shalas will be built in different areas of the state where the cows will be given shelter and taken care of.
However, when there are more pressing matters at hand, Yogi Adityanath’s affection and obsession with cows is not sitting too well with the citizens. They think it is a waste of time and money.
A lot of people are finding it ridiculous and took to Twitter to express their anger. Check it out:

Many people had joked about a "Cow Cess" or a "Gau Mata Tax" ever since this Govt started getting obsessed with cows.
But now, It is actually happening in Uttar Pradesh! 🤪https://t.co/QIueU7Vf0p
