Donate day's salary to feed cow: Diktat

LUCKNOW/AGRA: Even as UP grapples with the problem of stray farm animals, district administrations asked to keep an eye on the risk by leader minister Yogi Adityanath had been groping to search out answers.
While the Aligarh district Justice of the Peace has asked district-level officers to donate an afternoon's wage for the welfare of abandoned bovines, the Lucknow DM has issued an order pronouncing veterinary officers must make arrangements to feed cows.

The stray farm animals risk has heightened within the state, with bovines rampaging via farmlands or even causing accidents on streets. Reports of angry farmers locking up farm animals in schools and number one health centres have also been pouring in from around the state.

Aligarh district Justice of the Peace CB Singh stated that staff can deposit the amount within the checking account of Society for Animal Welfare, including that the state executive has also released Rs 2.1 crore for the purpose.

"Government funds are insufficient for feeding 30,000 abandoned cattle in the district. Their upkeep costs Rs 30 per animal every day. I have deposited Rs 11,000 in the account and almost all employees including chief development officer and SDMs are doing the same," added Singh.

In a be aware issued on Wednesday, Lucknow DM Kaushal Raj Sharma stated: "It will be the responsibility of veterinary officers to arrange for fodder for stray cattle at temporary cowsheds from the funds available at block and district levels."

"You will be responsible if lack of medical care results in the death of any animal," the be aware stated.

"Maintain details of tagging, sterilisation and medical treatment of cattle and engage your livestock extension officers and class IV employees for the purpose as per your convenience," it added.
