Inauguration of Animal Hostel at Akodara

With the financial aid of Rs 5 crore by the Government of Gujarat under Rashtriya Krushi Vikas Yojana (RKVY), we have constructed an Animal Hostel at Akodara in

Sabarkantha district. This Animal Hostel is the first of its kind in India and the inauguration of which has been solemnized by our Hon'ble Chief Minister Shri Narendra Modi Saheb on May 6, 2011. The inauguration of Animal Hostel has been done along with the opening ceremony of “Krushi Mahotsav”. In this function, dignitaries such as Shri Dilip Sanghani, Hon'ble Minister of Agriculture, Animal Husbandry & Co-operation, Shri Ramanlal Vora, Hon'ble Minister of Education, Shri Jashvantsinh Bhabher, Hon'ble Minister of State for Tribal Development, Shri Parsottam Solanki, Hon'ble Minister of State for Animal Husbandry, Fisheries & Cow Breeding, Shri Jaysinh Chauhan, Hon'ble Minister of State for Education, Shri Prafulbhai K Patel, Hon'ble Minister of State for Prison, Prohibition, Excise & Home and Secretaries of Agriculture and Animal Husbandry departments, Commissioners and Cooperative Leaders from the district were present along with the milk producer members. All of them had visited the hostel after the inauguration. The animal hostel helps maintain better hygiene at village level and thereby improves the health of the inhabitants. Besides this it helps for keeping the entire animals in the village together and maintains them properly and it also helps for better yield from the milch animals. As animals are kept together the dung of the animal can be used for producing bio-gas and electricity for use at village households and this also helps reduce the job of women in the villages other than protecting the environment. This is a direct step towards gram swaraj.
