Kalakacchya (Tripura), Apr 26 : Villagers in bird-flu hit Tripura have complained about the lack of adequate compensation from the government, even as culling of poultry continues to stave off avian influenza.
"We are not satisfied with the money offered by the government. In the market, the birds costs around 120 to 130 rupees each, but we are being paid a mere 40 rupees. Apart from that, if the culling is carried out in this process, all the farms will be destroyed," claimed Sephal Saha, a villager.
Veterinary officials in Kalakacchya village said they are working to check the spread of the disease.
