Earlier in the day, the Chief Minister held a meeting of the newly formed Gau Cabinet of the state online at his residence in Bhopal.
Addressing a public meeting at Salaria near Susner in Agar-Malwa district on Sunday, Chauhan also argued for feeding the first roti (Gaugrass) to Gomata in Indian culture on the back of a possible move to levy tax for the welfare of the Gau dynasty. BJP leader Chauhan questioned the attendees, ‘I am thinking of levying some minor tax for the welfare of Gomata and for the operation of gaushalas. Is it ok People responded positively to this.
He said, ‘The first roti in our homes was made for the cow. And the last bread was fed to the dog. This was our Indian culture. Now Gaugrass does not come out in most houses and we cannot take Gaugrass separately. So we are thinking of imposing a small tax for the welfare of the cows. ‘
Apart from this, he said that a law will be made for the operation of cowshed in the state and the district collectors have been directed to appoint a nodal officer for the operation of each cowshed. The Chief Minister informed that 2000 gaushalas will be built in the state and these will be operated with the help of social organizations.

The Chief Minister advocated giving milk instead of eggs to help improve the health of the most malnourished children and also said to take decisions to promote the use of cow dung and cow urine for the betterment of the society.
