Guwahati: Assam government has agreed to open at least four new state-of-the-art veterinary hospitals in Guwahati, Dibrugarh, Tezpur, and Golaghat to handle the state's stray and pet animal problems.

Chief minister Himanta Biswa Sarma reviewed the status of the process with the Animal Husbandry and Veterinary Department on Wednesday and urged the department to provide the finest treatment and response to the health of stray and pet animals in the state. He further guaranteed that all departmental requirements will be met in this regard.

"We are establishing four state-of-the-art veterinary hospitals in Guwahati, Dibrugarh, Tezpur, and Golaghat to provide the finest critical care to stray and pet animals," Sarma added.

While applauding the decision, animal advocates encouraged the chief minister to establish a hotline to report any distress or accidents involving stray or pet animals.

recently The Assam government and the National Dairy Development Board (NDDB) have signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) to establish a joint venture business worth Rs 2000 crore with the goal of processing 10 lakh liters of milk through six new milk processing units in seven years.

On the occasion in Guwahati, Union Minister for Fisheries, Animal Husbandry, and Dairy Parshottam Rupala remarked that the Animal Husbandry sector can help Prime Minister Narendra Modi achieve his aim of doubling the income of the country's farmers.

Chief Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma invited all dairy cooperatives to participate in healthy contests for Assam's economic growth, promising that the state government will assist them. He also emphasized the need for multi-cropping and diversifying agricultural approaches, as well as hard labor and perseverance.

The Assam government also has proposed a modification to the state livestock preservation act of 2021, which would allow cattle to be transported between districts for agricultural and animal husbandry purposes, with the exception of areas that share an international border.

Industry and Commerce Minister Chandra Mohan Patowary introduced the Assam Cattle Preservation (Amendment) Bill, 2021. The state's slaughter, eating, and transit of cattle were all governed by the statute. The proposed "Assam Cattle Preservation (Amendment) Bill, 2021" aims to change some elements of the Assam Cattle Preservation Act, 2021 in order to remove certain existing restrictions, allowing cattle to be used for animal husbandry and agricultural purposes only.
