The agrarian organization calls for an urgent meeting with the central Government and the regional to agree on exceptional measures, and finish with the damage on farms and the danger to road safety.
ASAJA Castilla-La Mancha has led a written submission to the minister of Agriculture, Environment and Rural Development, Francisco Martínez Arroyo, and the delegate of the Government in the region, Jose Julian Gregory, requesting a joint meeting with urgent character, to be able to agree the steps they should take to fight against the plague of rabbits, since the competences on this issue are divided and isolated actions that have been put in place have not proved effective.
For this reason, the agrarian organization has required both Administrations to take responsibility, and has remembered that eludiéndolas are contributing to increase the damage on the farms of the farmers and ranchers, in addition to putting at risk the road safety of all citizens by the damage of the animals hunting in the infrastructure and means of communication.
During the meeting with the Government Delegation in the region with the Executive Committee of ASAJA CLM ten days ago, the delegate José Julián Gregory explained that while not officially declared plague of rabbits, you will not be able to take exceptional measures. However, and despite the formal request on the part of this agrarian organization, the Directorate-General of Agriculture and Livestock understands that the declaration of blight “is not an appropriate measure to tackle the problem.”
With regard to areas of public domain that are under the jurisdiction of ADIF and the Ministry of Development, central Government understands that measures are being taken to avoid the concentration of the species. However, the regional Government said that “on the question of who bears the responsibility for these damages, and in particular the most difficult areas to address are the security zones of ADIF and the Ministry of Development”, who “have warned on numerous occasions about his responsibility and the desirability of adopting effective measures, primarily the installation of mesh hutch”.
So ASAJA of Castile-La Mancha has proposed a joint meeting on the establishment of a protocol of action and coordination of any exceptional measures it must take. Otherwise, says the organization, will be in evidence the will of the democratically govern to solve the problems of the citizens.
