MPs from all parties demand livestock policy

Shimla, March 10 (UNI) Assembly members from all parties have called for a policy to protect cows and livestock in the state as Ramesh Dhawala (Jawalmukhi) tabled a private member’s resolution calling on the state to enact a deterrent law and policy to stop the straying of livestock in the state. Mr Dhawala seeking to count cattle, he said people misplace cows after they are dry. The threat becomes repentant and endless. He said the municipal committee and Gram Panchayat should also collect garbage in isolated places so that stray animals cannot feed on it. He said the government should deal with the disposal of plastic waste. Crores of milk packets are sold in the state and plastic litters public places. He said stray animals eat the plastic and also die from it. Balbir Verma (Chopal) said that during snowfall, people would misplace their pets and ruthlessly remove their ears with the tag attached to them. Asha Kumari (Dalhousie) said the public nuisance created by plastic wrappers and wrappers being thrown away carelessly in public places where stray cows and animals feed. She called for fines to be imposed on people found littering plastic and wrappers in public places. Cows have stomach tumors from eating plastic waste, she pointed out. She said that most urban, suburban and tourist places are filled with trash. The Manjeer area in Dalhousie has been pre-selected for development as a cow sanctuary. She said Rs 1500 per animal should be donated to cow shelters. Milk production increased by 5.6 pc in animal husbandry despite declining growth in other major sectors. The cows are not due to people’s careless attitude, but they go astray due to economic constraint. He said millions of dollars were spent rehabilitating stray cows. He said breeding policy should not be driven by primitive logic, but should be based on scientific thinking. UNIML RKM
