Nagaland Veterinarians’ Association (NVA) general conference was held at Hotel Japfü Kohima, here on Friday.

Speaking at the programme as special guest, advisor animal husbandry and veterinary services and women resource, R. Khing advocated on the need to rebuild the department of Animal Husbandry and Veterinary Services (AH&VS) with more sincerity and dedication. 

The advisor reminded that department of VH&VS was an essential department amongst agri and allied sector and that there was a need to improve production of meat in the state. 

He also advised them to stay away from the attitude of drawing salaries without work or contribution of services to the society and encouraged to give their best in propagation, production and contribution of meat in the state. 

Secretary to the government, IAS Khrupi Sothu stressed on the need of NVA to introspect whether the department was performing duties as expected.  He maintained that as essential department, state government had high expectations from them and in this regard, he urged veterinarians to give utmost importance for the department and deliver the best service to the state/society. 

Sothu also encouraged members to serve with committed spirit, devotion and honesty to achieve the goal of the association. 

Meanwhile, director AH&VS, Dr. Budhi Lama said that Nagaland was deficient in major livestock products and said that the total requirement of meat was 66.7000 tonnes whereas the internal domestic products was only 32.03000 tonnes which was about 48% only and therefore there was potential scope for animal husbandry development. 

He stated that veterinarians need to play pivotal role as stakeholders and pressure groups to support the department to meet the growing demand of the people in achieving the self sufficiency in major livestock products. 

Lama highlighted achievements of the department and state government announcing AH&VS department as essential department during the pandemic was a pride.

Further, he appealed to the veterinarians to unite and strengthen the association to achieve the targeted dreams and goals of the association. 

Earlier, the programme was chaired by vice president NVA, Dr. S. Apilo Kikon while NVA president, Dr. Ilang in his presidential address highlighted the activities initiated taken up from 2018 till date.
