New Delhi: A day after Rashtriya Kamdhenu Aayog (RKA) chairman Vallabhbhai Kathiria resigned, the commission has postponed the Kamdhenu Gau-Vigyan Prachar-Prasar Exam, which was scheduled to be held on February 25.
“Please note that online Kamdhenu Gau Vigyan Prachar Prasar Exam /Pratiyogita which was scheduled for 25th Feb 2021 including Mock Examination on 21st Feb 2021 has been postponed,” a notice on RKA website read.
However, no reason has been furnished for the postponement of the exam. The RKA has also not declared the new date for the exam. The announcement came after Kathiria completed his term of two years on February 20.
A ‘mock test’ which was scheduled to be held on February 21, also did not take place.
Kathiria during his tenure as chairman made headlines for his controversial statements about “cow science.”
“Cow is full of science…. If we talk about the $5-trillion economy, we have 19.42 crore govansh (cattle) in our country, which can play an important role in it (growth of the economy). Even if a cow does not give milk, its urine and dung is still precious; if we use those, not only will cows be saved, the entire economy will be on track,” Kathiria had said while announcing the Gau-Vigyan exam on January 5.
