SAD urges Bhagwant Mann to give compensation of Rs.50,000 per head for cattle deaths due to Lumpy Skin disease

Chandigarh, August 11, 2022 (Yes Punjab News)
The Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD) today requested Chief Minister Bhagwant Mann to give compensation of Rs. 50, 000 per head for cattle deaths due to lumpy skin disease to farmers and dairy owners even as it asserted that the delay in controlling the spread of the pandemic had dealt a severe blow to the dairy sector in Punjab.

In a statement released here SAD Acting Kisan Wing President Sikander Singh Maluka said it was shocking to note that farmers were facing cases of lumpy skin disease as early as mid July but the AAP government remained in denial mode about the existence of the disease. He said it was only after the news was published and aired by the media that the government woke up from its slumber and was now engaged in a damage control exercise. “However it is too late. 25,000 milch animals have been lost and farmers have suffered losses of Rs 70,000 to Rs 1.25 lakh per animal”.

Mr Maluka said earlier farmers had suffered due to distressed sale of Moong and floods and now this disease had caused havoc in the animal husbandry sector. He said the government failed to keep its promise and provide relief to farmers who had sold their Moong below MSP, later it failed to come to rescue of farmers who suffered due to heavy floods and now the government had failed to come to rescue of farmers who are facing the brunt of the lumpy skin disease.

Mr Maluka said the government should provide Rs. 50,000 per head to farmers without any delay besides providing help including medicines to dairy owners to counter the further spread of this disease.
