Must Read


Raju Shetty: Lumpy skin disease is spreading rapidly among livestock in the state (Lumpy Skin Disease) Farmers are very scared. The disease has spread to more than 22 districts including Kolhapur district. In this background, president of Swabhimani Shektar Sangathan, former MP Raju Shetty, as well as Ahmednagar social activist Arshad Sheikh, farmer Sampatrao Pawar, Sarpanch Tejas Ghule Patil, advocate for farmers. Asim Sarode, Adv. Trinal Tonpe, Adv. Ajit Deshpande, Adv. Ajinkya Udane, Adv. A Public Interest Litigation has been filed in Bombay High Court through Akshay Desai.

In this petition, Maharashtra State Animal Husbandry Dairy Development Fisheries Department, Animal Husbandry Commissionerate, Indian Veterinary Research Institute Pune, Maharashtra State Veterinary Medical Council, National Institute of Virology Pune, Government of Maharashtra are the respondents.

Veterinarians with certificates and diplomas along with BVSc in Veterinary Science should be empowered, facilitated and protected as ‘lumpy disease warriors’, necessary changes should be made in the diploma course in veterinary medicine and their services should be considered in the ‘lumpy’ disease remedial schemes, ‘lumpy’ Demands have been made through the petition that compensation of Rs 1.5 lakh should be given for each cow and cattle that died due to the disease, and that the government should take steps to make the price of milk and milk products affordable to the common people in the wake of the ‘lumpy’ disease.

Health emergencies from an animal perspective

Talking about this, the petitioner Raju Shetty said that mere announcement of huge amount of money or compensation scheme is not the answer to this question. The current situation is a health emergency from an animal perspective. Therefore, it is necessary for the government to make its entire system work in a planned manner. But sadly, how to vaccinate sick cows? There is no clear policy of the government about what are the measures to protect all pets in the state from lumpy disease and how vaccination will be made universal.

Asim Sarode, counsel for the petitioners, said that the provisions of Section 30B of the Indian Veterinary Medical Act could be relaxed to allow students with certificates and diplomas in veterinary science to provide their services. But, the government does not even seem to think about such visionary matters. There is a need for the government to plan immediate measures and visionary measures on the problem of ‘lumpi’ disease which is fatal from the point of view of animals and epidemic disease which causes huge losses to farmers.
