About the protection of cows, Dang said, “It is our duty to protect the cows, but it should not be done through words but through actions. Every farmer should rear a cow. A piece of land should be registered in the name of only when a farmer owns cattle. The government employees, whose salary is more than Rs 25, 000, should give at least Rs 500 every month to the cow shelters or donate the same amount for rearing cows.”
