Cabinet Sub Committee on fishermen, sheep and goat to empower the relying families financially will meet on Jan 19 and 20. Soon the government will press into service 100 mobile veterinary vehicles to offer immediate health services to the cattle. This was informed by Animal Husbandry Minister T Srinivas Yadav who heads the sub-committee to prepare a plan and modalities in this regard.
The Minister held a high level review meeting with the officials concerned and discussed on the plans to push the economically poor sections relying on sheep and goat development and fish production. He also said that the government is keen to provide the best health services to the cattle at the homes of farmers on a phone call. Every such mobile veterinary vehicle will be made available at each constituency. Tenders process is completed and soon the vehicles will become functional he said. Srinivas Yadav claimed that Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao is aiming to empower Yadava, Besta and Mudiraj communities economically. Efforts are being made by KCR Government to give these communities the resources by importing them from other states he said.
Every person of these families will get the right to earn he said adding that they will get sheep, goats from other states and handover them to the communities relying. As we have done in the case of distributing free of cost the fish seed into lakes, water bodies and ponds, we will get the sheep and goats from other states and give them to those who are involved in the profession to eke out their livelihood Srinivas Yadav said. So far, 28 cr of fish seed were dropped into the lakes and water bodies which will help the Besta and Mudiraj communities to flourish in future. He flayed that the previous government neglected these communities and spent only Rs 1 cr out of Rs 5 cr. However the KCR Government allotted Rs 101 cr for these communities and taking steps to flourish them financially. (NSS)
