Naveen Patnaik, chief minister of Odisha, today sanctioned rupees 60 lakh from chief minister's relief fund(CMRF)  for feeding the stray animals during COVID-19 lockdown in the state. The areas in which the sanction money will be used are 5 municipal corporations, 48 municipalities and 61 notified area councils  (NAC). The sanction came after the department of housing and urban development had discussed with the civic bodies to make some provisions for providing food to stray animals in urban and semi urban areas during the lockdown. The state government has assigned unit cost per day for all the jurisdictional boundaries at a fixed price to meet the required expenditure on this program.

The state government has been extensively working to stop the spread of COVID-19 pandemic by putting forward vaccination programs with high priority. The state government has started the vaccination program for the age group of 18 to 44 years with the state owned funds in municipal corporations where the positivity rate is relatively high. And after such measures now the government is focusing on feeding stray animals.
