Thousands urge Ban on Cow Slaughter: Use 'Jeevamruta' to Rejuvanate Soil

Use 'Jeevamruta' to Rejuvanate Soil

Thousands urge Ban on Cow Slaughter


More than 30,000 people from Sarvajna Nagar and Bytarayanapura Assembly Constituency of Bangalore urged the Karnataka Government to Ban Cow slaughter and to make use of Jeevamruta, organic fertilizer made out of Cow Dung and Cow urine in flood affected areas to rejuvenate the soil which became salty due to heavy rains.

A Citizens Delegation of the above said areas submitted a memorandum to Chief Minister B.S. Yediyurappa, through Home Minister Dr. V.S. Acharya on Friday 16th October 2009, which was signed by more than 30,000 people.

Memorandum explained that rejuvenation of soil before next cultivation season is very important as most of the soil beame salty due to floods. There is no wonder if affected farmers try to use chemical fertilizers to improve the soil condition which will harm the soil further.

At this juncture need of the hour is to take some action to improve the soil condition to get good crops next year. Jeevamrut is simple and cheaper organic fertilizer and this could be prepared in the flood affected areas itself after collecting cow dung from various parts of state in the form of donation or through purchase. Such programme will provide employment at least to some flood affected people.

Dr. V.S. Acharya promised the delegation that Government will take action to protect cows shortly. In fact, draft bill has been already prepared and it will be passed soon, he said.

Marappa Alasoor, Thimmegowda, Govinda Rao, Dr. Raja Ram Prasad, Kamala, Muniraju, Vardhaman Jain, Muniraj Karnik and other prominent leaders were there in the the delegation.
