Rajasthan Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot on Monday approved Rs 30 crore for procurement of drugs and vaccines to prevent lumpy skin diseases in livestock.

The state government is working with complete commitment and seriousness to prevent the spread of lumpy skin disease, says a press release released by the CM’s office.

Previously, too, decisions had been made to purchase the necessary drugs without going to tender. It should be noted that the Livestock Department had submitted a proposal for an additional provision of Rs 30 crore in the financial year 2022-23 under the Pashudhan Nishulk Aroyga Yojana for the districts to procure medicines and vaccines to prevent lumpy skin disease, which is currently spreading throughout the state.

The Chief Minister sanctioned this proposal on Monday.

Following CM approval, vaccines and medications can be purchased immediately as needed to prevent the spread of Lumpy Skin Disease in livestock.
