MLA, Nubra met with Member Parliament Ladakh

Leh, February 6 (Scoop News) –Giving quick response to the unprecedented heavy snowfall in upper Changthang region causing heavy livestock losses, the Executive Councilor for Animal & Sheep Husbandry Gyurmet Dorjey in a letter addressed to Chief Minister J&K State, Omar Abdullah informed him about the current situation in Changthang due to continues heavy snowfall from yesterday and requested him to immediately release of funds for purchase of feed and fodder in order to save the remaining livestock in the region.
Mr. Gyurmet in his letter made a detail mention that heavy snowfall in extremely cold, dry and high elevated plateau of Changthang is an unusual meteorological phenomena rarely experienced in the region that has left thousands of Pashmina goats and sheep at the brink of loss in absence of feed and fodder. The letter further said that the pasture lands are currently under a thick layer of snow coupled with acute shortage of feed and fodder and as per the report of the SDM, Nyoma, mortality of goats and sheep have already gone upto 5500 after the heavy snowfall and the number of mortality of livestock continuously increasing with every passing day due to starvation.
Keeping in view the deteriorating situation, Mr. Gyurmet further informed the Chief Minister that it has become highly imperative to arrange feed and fodder in Changthang with sufficient quantity on a war footing to avoid massive animal devastation as the inhabitants of Changthang are entirely dependent on sheep and goat rearing for their livelihood producing world class Pashmina wool/Cashmere.
