Worship, Kill, Export: BJP ruled India is world’s largest beef exporter!

New Delhi, Apr 24: While most of the state governments in India are trying to implement strict ban on slaughtering of cows and bullocks, the nation stands contradictory in its exporting of beef.

According to the latest report released by United States department of agriculture (USDA), India not only stands at the top as global beef exporter sharing position with Brazil, but also India’s exports of beef are on the rise.

The report predicts that India's beef export will cross 10.2 MT when Bharatiya Janata Party’s cow worshipping Prime Minister Narendra Modi completes one year at the helm of nation’s governance.

India has been the largest exporter of beef in the world since last year, and has further widened its lead over second-ranked Brazil with a projected total of 2.4 million tons exported in 2015 against Brazil’s 2 million.

Beef has also overtaken basmati rice as India’s largest agricultural food export in terms of value, according to data from the country’s Agricultural and Processed Food Products’ Export Development Authority, cited by the Economic Times newspaper.

Although the slaughter of cows, sacred for the Hindus that make up India’s majority population, has long been banned in several parts of the country, states like Maharashtra — one of its largest — recently expanded the ban to include bulls and bullocks as well. However, since India’s exports are composed entirely of water-buffalo meat or carabeef, the bans will not affect the figures cited in the report.

“It could bring an end to illegal slaughter and raise the price for buffalo meat, thus proving to be beneficial for companies like us who are engaged in legal slaughter and export of buffalo meat,” Priya Sud, a partner at New Delhi–based Al Noor Exports, said.

Meanwhile, the Russian market is very keen on Indian buffalo meat export as they are also thinking to increase the shipments.

Russia had already approved four Indian companies to export meat. However, the data provided by Agricultural and Processed Food Products' Export Development Authority (Apeda) also indicates that the buffalo meat has already overtaken basmati rice as the largest exported commodity.

Vietnam is considered as the largest buyer of Indian buffalo meat. "The devaluation of Brazilian currency and problems in the re-export of buffalo meat from Vietnam to Hong Kong have affected Indian exports," DB Sabharwal, secretary of All India Meat and Livestock Exporters' Association, said.

Mangaluru, Oct 14: Amidst incessant rains for past few days, the barrier wall of the historical Sri Karinjeshwara Temple at Bantwal taluk has collapsed.

The damage was noticed by the temple staff on the morning of Wednesday, October 14.

The courtyard adjoining the wall was used to feed monkeys after daily prayer to the god.

“The temple is located on a huge rock and has a history of almost four Century. The bottom of the collapsed area is stone and mound hence no damage was done to the temple,” the temple administrator Noonya Naik said on Wednesday.

He further stated that remedial action will be taken after structural review by a specialist.

Bengaluru, Oct 24: The state government hopes to save costs on Covid testing by adopting pooled sampling. In this process, instead of testing just one sample in one test tube, five samples are used.

However, this can be done only when there are greater chances of samples being negative, since, if a sample pool tests positive, then each sample has to be individually tested again.

Now, with 10 districts of Bidar, Gadag, Raichur, Koppal, Kalaburagi, Yadgir, Ramanagara, Shivamogga, Chamarajanagar, and Kolar, having less than 5% weekly positivity rate, the state has allowed pooled sampling here.

However, in the rest of the 20 districts, individual tests will continue till they have a weekly average positivity rate of less than 5%. The government pays Rs 800 for every sample’s RTPCR test in a private lab. In Karnataka, 65% of labs are private and more than one lakh tests are done at government and private labs.

In Ramanagara district, which has a TPR of 4.1%, district surveillance officer Dr Kiran Shankar said, “We have a target of testing 800 samples with RT PCR everyday.”

“While pooling samples, we will make sure they are of low risk categories and not SARI, ILI or of patients with comorbidities. In pooling, the cost incurred on reagents added to samples and consumables will come down,” he said.

“Earlier, we would test only 96 samples in one cycle, which would take two-and-a-half hours. Now, we can pool and test 480 samples and get the results in a short time.”

Dr C N Manjunath, state nodal officer for Covid-19 testing, explained the process. “If Ramanagara has a target of testing 800 samples everyday via RT PCR, instead of using 800 test tubes for 800 samples separately, 160 tubes will hold 800 samples as each tube will have five samples.”

Dr V Ravi, Senior Professor and Head, Neurovirology, Nimhans, and member of State Covid-19 Technical Advisory Committee, told DH, “Increased volume and decreased costs are the benefits of pooled testing. Cost is reduced while doing RNA extraction.”

Koppal has so far done 75,235 RT PCR tests. It’s weekly test positivity rate (TPR) is 3.7%. Vikas Kishor Suralkar, deputy commissioner, Koppal told DH, “We have been pooling samples even when our TPR was more than 5%. But I agree that the likelihood of a positive pool is less when the TPR is less than 5%. Even if some pools should come positive and we have to test all five samples individually again, one extra test doesn’t increase the cost much. But avoiding five individual tests, when a pool comes negative,  greatly reduces the cost.”
