UP CM Yogi Adityanath Said “There are more than 5 lakh cows in various cow shelters at present, and more than 65,000 cows have already been given to farmers. The festival of Gopashtami has served as an inspiration to all of us towards our responsibility towards cows”.
In one of the most unique schemes in the country, Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath on Sunday gifted cows to 11 families with malnourished children.
Earlier, CM Yogi Adityanath worshipped cows on the occasion of Gopashtami at Tanda Falls and also inspected the cow shelters.
The move of handing over cows to families will serve dual purpose of preserving cows as well as providing nourishment to under-nourished children.
On the occasion, Adityanath said, “Stray cows should be kept in cow shelters and then should be distributed among farmers. Every farmer rearing a stray cow should get Rs 900 per month per cow.”
“When the children of these families will get milk, their malnourishment will be eradicated. When the children are healthy, the future of the country and society is bright,” the chief minister said.
Designated as ‘Sahbhagita Yojana (co-participation scheme)’ , UP government is giving Rs 900 every month to the person who is taking care of cows.
As many as 66,257 cows have been given under the scheme out of which 1071 cows distributed among 1069 families of malnourished children.
“There are more than 5 lakh cows in various cow shelters at present and more than 65,000 cows have already been given to farmers and the festival of `Gopashtami’ has served as an inspiration to all of us towards our enhanced responsibility towards cows,” CM Yogi added.
On the occasion, CM Yogi also thanked Union Minister Gajendra Singh for being helpful in laying the foundation of Rs 5,555 crore drinking water scheme for about 2995 villages.
“I am extremely happy that our Prime Minister laid the foundation stone on the auspicious occasion of Gopashtami,” he said.
To catch up to WhatsApp, Signal adds custom wallpapers and animated stickers.
Signal enjoyed an unexpected uptick in users following WhatsApp’s recent privacy blunder. In an effort to capitalize on its rising popularity, Signal has started testing features that make the messaging platform feel a little friendlier.
Earlier this month, Signal announced a handful of new features that would be coming to the platform, including chat wallpapers and animated stickers. As promised, these two features are now available in the beta version of the app, making it feel more like WhatsApp than ever before.
Android Police got its hands on both new features, sharing screenshots of what chat wallpapers look like. You can change your chat wallpaper in Signal by going to Settings > Appearance > Chat wallpaper. You can also change the wallpaper of an individual chat by tapping the person’s name in the top bar and looking for the chat wallpaper option.
There are a total of 21 chat wallpapers to choose from, including 12 solid colors and 9 gradient colors. Android Police said you can also choose a photo from your phone’s camera roll for extra personalization. Before, Signal featured only white and black backgrounds depending on if dark mode was enabled on your device.
Android Police also provides a quick preview of Signal’s new animated stickers—something the platform has dabbled with in the past. There’s a new Day by Day sticker pack that contains 24 animated stickers to help liven up your conversation. The art is by Miguel Angel Camprubí.
Finally, Signal appears to be adding a simple About section for users’ profiles. Users will have the opportunity to choose an emoji and also add a short description of themselves. It’s a simple way to share some of your personality before even having a conversation. Apparently, Signal users can save several blurbs and switch between them on the fly, essentially making them status updates.
If you’re on iOS, Signal said it also plans to add media auto-download settings and full-screen profile photos, the latter of which is already available on Android.
These new additions to Signal appear to be in the beta version of the app for now. Hopefully, testing goes smoothly so they can be added to the stable build. Once that rolls out, we’ll be sure to let you know.
