MP to bring legislation on bovine breeding
The Madhya Pradesh government has decided to come with legislation for regulating bovine breeding and its techniques. Currently, there is no regulation or a bovine breeding Act of the state government. Once the Bill is cleared, it would render regulatory powers to the animal husbandry department. Madhya Pradesh will be the third state in the country after Punjab and Haryana to do so. Though there are Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) and minimum protocol for bovine breeding, there is no check to figure out whether they are being followed or not. The Bill is expected to be introduced in the Monsoon session of the Vidhan Sabha.
LS polls: Ex-BSP MLAs may switch over to Cong
Even as the SP and the BSP have forged an alliance for the Lok Sabha elections in Madhya Pradesh, some former BSP legislators may be on their way to becoming part of the Congress’ fold. If informed sources in Bhopal are to be believed, a group of ex-BSP MLAs, including Rajkumar Urmallia, Ramkhelawan Patel and Janpad Panchayat leader Geeta Majhi, are in touch with the top Congress leadership in the central state for switching sides. If it happens, then that could help the Congress’s electoral cause in the state’s Vidhya region, where the party performed miserably in the last year’s Assembly elections.

‘Congress will win 25 seats in Lok Sabha polls’
Chief Minister Kamal Nath, who is also the Madhya Pradesh Congress Committee (MPCC) president, exuded confidence on Thursday about the party being in a position to win 25 out of the 29 Lok Sabha seats of the state in the general elections. He also claimed that after May 15, the country will not have Narendra Modi as the PM.

Later, some other Congress leaders said they didn’t know about the basis of the CM’s claims, but on ground level the feedback suggest that the Congress is in a position to win 10-plus seats.
