Pune, 26th January 2022: Deputy Chief Minister of Maharashtra and Guardian Minister of Pune District Ajit Pawar today dedicated 25 Veterinary Hospitals (Mobile Vans) at a ceremony held at Police Ground, Shivajinagar.

Pune ZP CEO Ayush Prasad said, “On the occasion of the 73rd Republic Day, Pune Zilha Parishad launched a new scheme to provide veterinary services at the homes of farmers. 10 mobile veterinary dispensaries were flagged off by Dy CM Maharashtra Ajit Pawar. 15 more veterinary dispensaries would be pressed into service soon.”

Zilla Parishad’s agriculture and animal husbandry committee chairperson Baburao Appa explained, “In case of livestock sickness, sudden poisoning, or an emergency situation, it may be difficult for the farmers to reach the veterinary clinic or in case of natural calamity, the veterinarian may not be able to reach the spot. Farmers have to bear a huge financial burden to get to the hospital for treatment. Due to untimely treatment, the animal dies and the farmers have to bear the huge financial loss.

Most parts of the Pune district are remote and hilly. There is a lack of transportation facilities in these areas and it is not possible to bring the farmers to the hospital. And some veterinarians have lost their lives in accidents while providing necessary and timely treatment of livestock in such remote and mountainous areas. The mobile veterinary clinic van will make it easier to save the lives of the animals on time.”

He appealed to the farmers to call the toll-free number 1962 and avail of this service.

On this occasion, ZP President Nirmala Pansare, Vice President Ranjit Shivatare, Puja Parge, CEO Ayush Prasad, Additional CEO Bharat Shendge, District Animal Husbandry Officer Dr Shivaji Vidhate, etc. were present.
