CHENNAI: The PMK has urged the Tamil Nadu government to implement drought mitigation measures to prevent cattle deaths. Nearly 300 cattle reportedly died in Salem due to shortage of water and fodder and farmers even in other drought-hit districts were struggling to feed their cattle.

“If the situation prolonged, Tamil Nadu might lose more animals to drought and this will create an irreparable impact on farmers’ livelihood,” said PMK’s youth wing secretary Anbumani Ramadoss. In his official statement on Thursday, he urged  authorities concerned to ensure that cattle feed reached the affected areas soon.
