India could learn from China’s successful poverty alleviation: report


It means, on average, every year China pulled 19 million poor people out of extreme poverty for the past 40 years, a report published in the Indian Express said.

In a recent article headlined “How China overcame extreme poverty; and what lessons it holds for India,” the Indian Express claimed that India may learn from China’s achievement in reducing poverty in its efforts to do the same.
According to a World Bank report referenced in the article, China stated in 2021 that it had abolished extreme poverty as measured by the national poverty threshold, raising about 770 million people since 1978, and that it had established a society that was moderately rich overall.
According to the story published on October 10, China has been lifting 19 million impoverished people out of extreme poverty on average every year for the previous 40 years.
According to the research, “China’s success in reducing poverty depended on two pillars.” The first pillar was underpinned by broad-based economic reform and saw significant economic growth. The second was government initiatives to combat poverty, which at first focused on geographically and economically disadvantaged areas but later turned their attention to impoverished households everywhere.
The World Bank report was cited in the article as claiming that China’s achievement was a result of strong governance, which “was vital to the successful implementation of the growth strategy as well as the evolving set of targeted poverty reduction programs.”
According to the article, India has the greatest number of poor people, according to data from a recent World Bank report on world poverty.
According to a World Bank research, 56 million more Indians will be living in extreme poverty in 2020, live on less than 46 Indian rupees (about 0.55 U.S. dollars) per day. According to the report, approximately 600 million Indians make do on less than 84 Indian rupees (or $1.02) per day.

Lumpy skin disease: Viral cattle disease sends rumours flying in India

On social media in India, false information about a virus that affects cattle is circulating.
According to the most recent data from the government, lumpy skin disease has already infected over 2.4 million animals and caused the deaths of over 110,000 cattle in India.
India produces the most milk in the world and has the most cattle, but the virus is endangering the livelihoods of farmers there. Meanwhile, false information has caused some people to be hesitant about drinking milk. We refute three untrue statements made concerning the illness.
Is milk produced by infected cattle safe for human consumption?
Many viral social media posts incorrectly assert that the expansion of lumpy skin disease has rendered milk unfit for human consumption and that ingesting milk from diseased animals would result in the onset of a skin condition in people as well. The messages frequently include frightening photographs of human beings covered with sores and clearly ill.
“I have seen many such claims in social media groups of the dairy industry. Those who circulate such claims are not responsible – they share it as though it is information that only they possess,” Poras Mehla, general secretary of an association of 6,000 dairy farmers in the northern Indian state of Haryana, told the BBC.
The misleading claim is having an adverse effect on dairy farmers. Manav Vyas, a dairy farmer and the head of a cattle shelter in the western Indian state of Rajasthan, says, “I observed this allegation on social media and even heard that some people who believe it are throwing away milk.” “Dairy producers, who are already struggling financially after losing calves to lumpy skin disease, also have to deal with the shame of consumers who won’t buy milk.”

Gujarat: Cows let loose in India government buildings in protest

Cows have taken over government buildings and roads in Gujarat

Thousands of cows have been released in protest at the lack of promised government assistance by charitable trusts that operate livestock shelters in the Gujarat state of western India.
Government buildings have been traversed by cows in videos that have gone viral.
In the event that money is not released by the government, protesters have threatened to boycott the upcoming state election.
A lumpy skin disease outbreak in multiple Indian states is causing livestock losses, and Gujarat is one of them.
More than 5,800 cattle deaths have been registered in the state, and it is predicted that almost 170,000 have been impacted by the illness.
Cows are considered to be sacrosanct by the Hindu majority in India, and slaughtering them is forbidden in 18 states, including Gujarat.
Gujarat toughened its cow protection regulations in 2017 by announcing that individuals who kill a cow could face a life sentence.
Unexpected results include a lot of cattle wandering the streets, clogging up traffic, or ending up at shelters.
The Gujarati government included 5 billion rupees ($61 million; £57 million) in its budget for this year to maintain sanctuaries for cows and other elderly animals in the state.
However, managers of shelters said they were “cheated” by the government and claimed they had not received any funding under the program.
They claimed that despite making numerous official representations, no solutions had been provided.
