Haryana government's Gau Seva Ayog is proposing the setting up of a university dedicated to researching the milk, urine and dung of cows, which would offer diploma courses in this field.

Gau Seva Ayog chairman Bhani Ram Mangla told The Times of India that he would speak with Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar on either Monday or Tuesday about this proposed university, which would require about 500 acres of land. "We want to conduct research on urine and dung of the cow," he told the newspaper.

Ahead of Eid, the Gau Ayog had asked the state police to check whether vendors in Muslim-dominated Mewat were putting beef instead of mutton in biryani.

Mangla believes that opening such a university will boost the production of cow milk as well as create jobs for unemployed youth.
