350 FACs in Jammu work on internal adjustment of staff
Govt announcement on regularisation of FACs is rhetoric
5/1/2019 11:43:56 PM
Early Times Report
Jammu, May 1: The nonchalant attitude of J&K government can be gauged from this fact that nearly more than 500 First Aid Centres (FACs) of veterinary are being managed through internal adjustment of staff.
The successive coalition governments in the state had repeatedly announced that these FACs would be regularised soon and that permanent staff would be assigned there. But these announcements never translated into action.
"During the Budget Session of 2018, the issue was raised by former Member Legislative Assembly, R S Pathania. Thereafter, the then In-charge Minister Animal/Sheep and Fisheries had assured the House that the matter is in active consideration of government and that the government is going to regularise these temporary FACs soon", said sources while wishing anonymity.
As per the available information maximum Veterinary FACs are operating from Ramban district, followed by Poonch, Rajouri and Udhampur districts. "In Udhampur, 29 including 13 Veterinary and three Sheep Husbandry FACs or Trail Centres are running from internal adjustment of staff," said sources.
The callousness on part of Directorate of Sheep Husbandry Jammu judged from this fact that the department had started the construction of three sheep husbandry buildings including Katwalta, Garhsamnabanj and Kaitha under Rural Infrastructure Development Funds (RIDF) through NABARD funding. But these buildings are still in oblivion while the three Sheep Extension centres announced at Majalta, Seogalli and Dheern under Centre Sponsored Scheme Livestock Health and Disease control are yet to launched.
Locals said that most of time these FACs were found locked in rural and hilly areas. If someone visits these centres, the available staff provide only first aid to livestock and refer the visitors to District Veterinary Hospital for advance treatment. But it is not possible for gullible villagers to visit city with their livestock, that too without any transportation from the department concerned.
