The FKJGP Aradonga area unit on Tuesday inspected the Veterinary hospital at Aradonga, West Khasi Hills district which is along the border of Assam.
This inspection was done after people residing in the area reported about the non-functional veterinary hospital and has been ‘abandoned’ by the department for a very long time.
During the inspection the FKJGP found out that the said veterinary hospital had remained shut and also there was nobody to look after it.
“This hospital is no difference than a stable or a cowshed. The quarters of this hospital which was meant for staff to stay was damaged since there is nobody to look after it,” Enbok Marak, general secretary FKJGP Aradonga area unit said.
The FKJGP unit expressed concern that the government had abandoned the hospital at Aradonga.
“This particular Veterinary hospital which is at Aradonga is very important to treat animals like cow, sheep, hens, pigs, in the area,” Marak said.
Also at the same time the FKJGP is concerned about the coming of thousands of cattle from our neighbouring state without proper check up whether these cattle are free from diseases.
