Tripura gets ready for white revolution with its ‘Mukhyamantri Unnoto Godhan Prakalpa

Agartala: Cows have their social, cultural, religious and economic importance in India. But due to their neglect, not only milk production in India had declined but indigenous breed of cows also suffered a lot.

So, the Government of India has taken various measures for proliferation of bovine progeny in the country and the efforts made by the government is paying off well. Similar has been the case with Tripura where the government is taking every possible measure in this regard.

The case in point here is that Kamini Debbarma Teliamura was trying hard to raise female calf but her cow was only giving birth to male calves for years. For the family of Kamini, it was economically unviable to raise male calves as there was no financial return.

Finally, she enrolled herself as a beneficiary of ‘Mukhyamantri Unnoto Godhan Prakalpa of the Tripura government and on September 16 last her cow gave birth to a female calf.

The artificial insemination scheme broadly known as ‘Mukhyamantri Unnoto Godhan Prakalpa’ has fetched the 97 percent success mark in Tripura paving way for a milk-based economy in the rural Tripura to grow. The scheme that was started last year with a prime objective to increase the number of cows so that the overall milk production in the state can be improved.

The Animal Resources Development Department (ARDD) of the state government has taken in hand a far-reaching plan to empower farmers with a good milk production booster for the rural economy. According to the available data, altogether 163 calves took birth in the past one month out of which 158 calves were female while rest of the five calves were male.

All the 163 cows were inseminated artificially with sex sorted semen.
The success rate now stands at 97 per cent. This project is the brainchild of Tripura Chief Minister Biplap Kumar Deb who was once misquoted by several media organizations for openly inspiring youth to rear cows and his statement by and large drew negative coverage.

However, years after his statement, the scheme is doing wonders in the state. Only the Amul India officials that are running the country’s largest milk chain came forward in the support of the Chief Minister and interestingly the progress of the schemes suggests that the Chief Minister’s anticipation was right.

The Department of Fisheries, Animal Husbandry and Dairying had an annual budget of Rs 3,289.13 crore for the financial year 2020-21. The interim budget for 2019-20 has proposed to set up an authority, Rashtriya Kamdhenu Aayog, for the effective implementation of laws and welfare schemes for cows with a corpus of Rs 500 crore.

Call me “Dada”, not “Sir”, Tripura CM Biplab Kumar Deb to employees

Agartala: In what appears to be a step to boost the morale of the government employees, Chief Minister Biplab Kumar Deb on Sunday asked the government employees to call him “Dada” instead of “Sir”. “Call me Dada, not sir. It enhances the warmth of the relationship”, Deb told a gathering of government employees.

Deb exhorted the government employees of the state especially ASHA and Anganwadi workers of the state asking them not to dishearten as the state government was eager to improve their pay structure.

“I salute the ASHA and Anganwadi workers of my state. The level of dedication that my sisters have shown during the pandemic period deserved applause. I know, they want to hear good news from me and I am assuring you all that this government will not disappoint anyone”, Chief Minister Biplab Kumar Deb told a gathering of government employees at Badharghat sports school field organized by Vivekananda Vicha Manch (VVM).

VVM has emerged as a big platform of government employees, of late, and Sunday’s public rally was its first big gathering to thank the Chief Minister for the series of steps his government took for the welfare of the employees.

“I know what challenges you people are facing. Nothing is hidden in front of me. I am assuring you all everything will be taken care of in the due course of time”, he added.  Lauding the efforts of government employees Deb said, without them no government office can function.

“Due to the efforts of government employees, people can access the benefits of the state sponsored welfare schemes. But, for a prolonged period the employees did not get their right to do something freely. They were trapped in the clutches of unions. In the previous regime, Left sponsored unions used to enjoy supreme power which had reduced the whole work culture of the state to tatters. In 2018, you people showed courage and voted BJP to power”, said Deb.

“Despite fund constraints, the state government is positively working on the issues of DA and other factors pertaining to the interest of the government employees. Our government has already addressed a number of issues related to financial benefits. The ad-hoc promotion, increment for Group D, Group C employees, regularization of SSA teachers, seventh pay scale, UGC scale for professors, special benefit for LTC are to name a few. All these indicate what we want to do and we shall do what we promise”, the Chief Minister said.

The Chief Minister also asked the officials not to call him “sir” suggesting them to refer to him as “Dada” as it makes the relationship stronger and cherished. The Chief Minister also distributed clothes among children of Badharghat sports school during the programme. State BJP President Manik Saha, Minister Ram Prasad Paul, Minister Sushanta Chowdhury, MLA Mimi Majumder, state BJP Vice President and president of Vivekananda Vichar Manch Rajib Bhattacharjee also spoke on the occasion.
