CHANDIGARH: Punjab animal husbandry, fisheries and dairy development minister Laljit Singh Bhullar said on Wednesday that the department had released Rs 76 lakh to all districts to procure medicines for prevention of lumpy skin disease among animals.
Following the reports of the spread of this disease in the border districts, Bhullar said Rs 5 lakh each has been released to Gurdaspur, Amritsar, Tarn Taran, Fazilka and Ferozepur districts and Rs 3 lakh each to the rest of the districts so that the district offices did not face any problem in purchasing required medicines. The minister asked the officials to continuously sensitise farmers, livestock farmers and the general public for the prevention of the disease.
“The state government has already issued advisory and necessary guidelines to prevent the disease and directed the officials to follow it strictly,” he added. The minister also instructed the district deputy directors to visit areas under their jurisdiction.
