As Assistant Animal Resources Officer Md Shahidul Islam has retired, this very important office of the upazila has now become vacant. As a result, more than 150 farmers of 5 unions of the upazila, including more than half a million families, are in trouble with the treatment of domestic cattle. According to the Upazila Animal Resources Department sources, in the organogram of the Upazila Animal Resources Department, a total of 5 officers-employees including one veterinary surgeon, one compounder, two field VSS and one office assistant were posted instead of 11 officials. Among them, Veterinary Surgeon Md Yunuch Mia was transferred in February this year and moved to Tetuliya Upazila in Panchagar District. As Field VSS Mosharraf Hossain went on retirement leave (LPR) last January and Md. Shahidul Islam in June, this important government office became vacant. Currently only office assistant Humayun Kabir is looking after the office alone. As a result, the upazila’s animal resource development and health treatment programs have come to a standstill.
