KATHMANDU, July 13: Minister for Agriculture and Livestock Development Beduram Bhusal has said that the National Dairy Development Board (NDDB) and the Cotton Development Committee (CDC) would be restructured. 

Although the two entities would be dissolved, the government would continue their function, the minister said on Thursday while responding to questions raised in a meeting of the National Assembly on various subjects relating to the Appropriation Bill, 2080.

"Despite the two institutions being dissolved, the government will restructure them to make their function more effective and fruitful," he said. 

He added that the ministry did not decide to dissolve those entities but rather acted upon the recommendation of the restructuring commission led by Dr Dilliraj Khanal.  

On another topic, the minister said the infection and mortality rate of domestic animals getting infected with lumpy skin disease has been declining. So far, 782,184 domestic animals have been infected with the disease across the country, and over 28,000 have died from it, he informed the upper house members.
