Government claims – there is no shortage of milk and butter in the country, denial of need for import

The government on Friday put an end to speculations about shortage of butter and other dairy products in the country. Union Minister Purushottam Rupala termed the reports of shortage of dairy products in the country as baseless and said that there is no need to import them. He said that the government is constantly keeping an eye on this matter.

Rupala told this

Rupala currently has the responsibility of the Ministry of Fisheries, Animal Husbandry and Dairying. Amidst all the speculations, he made it clear that India does not need to import butter or any other dairy product right now. The possibilities present in the country itself have not been exploited properly. In such a situation, adequate supply of dairy products will be ensured from the domestic sector itself and the condition of the industry will be improved.

There is no truth in speculations

Union Minister Rupala was participating in a program on Friday. Apart from this, while talking to reporters, he reacted to the speculations about the shortage of dairy products in the country. There is no truth in these speculations, he said. There will be no import of these. There is no dearth of milk or milk products in the country. The government is constantly monitoring the situation.

Government will manage well

He claimed that even though the demand for milk and milk products has increased, there is a huge area in the country itself, which has not been exploited. We will try to use them. We will manage it well. There is no need to worry about this.

Farmers are getting the price

Rupala also said that neither the farmers need to panic nor the customers need to worry about the speculations. Regarding the continuous increase in the prices of milk and dairy products, the Union Minister said that there should be no worry about this. Farmers are getting good price.

Milk prices have increased rapidly

Let us tell you that according to official figures, the total production of milk in the country during 2021-22 was 221 million tonnes. This was 6.25 per cent higher than the year-ago figure of 208 million tonnes. However, during the last few months, Lumpy virus disease and some other conditions have affected the market. Milk production has been affected by the disease, while on the other hand the prices of animal feed have increased rapidly. This is the reason why there has been a continuous increase in the price of milk, which is spoiling the kitchen budget of common people.
