Union minister and Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Giriraj Singh urged scientists to conduct more research on cow dung, suggesting that this could make it financially viable for farmers to keep their cows even after they have stopped producing milk.

"Stray cattle is a major problem in Uttar Pradesh," Giriraj Singh said at a workshop for vice chancellors and veterinary officers from 12 states here on Monday.

Giriraj Singh was suggesting that if farmers can make money out of cow dung and urine they will not abandon their cattle.

"There is immense scope of value addition to milk, dung and urine of the cow that would ultimately contribute to the economy of the country," Union Minister for Fisheries, Animal Husbandry and Dairying Giriraj Singh said.

Giriraj Singh said if the input cost of agriculture decreases, villages and farmers would progress.

The BJP leader further said he followed the ideals of Mahatma Gandhi, Ram Manohar Lohia and Deendayal Upadhyaya.

"Just like people keep in mind the teachings of Gita, Quran and Ramayana, I practise the ideals of Gandhi, Lohia, and Deendayal Upadhyaya," Giriraj Singh said.
