No respite from stray cat­tle on roads

Sunday Express - - INDIA -

Stray cat­tle roam­ing on the streets of Patna have be­come a me­nace for ve­hi­cle driv­ers and traf­fic po­lice. Some ar­eas on Ashok Ra­j­path, Patna Mar­ket, and Digha-Ashi­ana road of­ten be­come tough for driv­ing for these bovines. But, the Patna Mu­nic­i­pal Cor­po­ra­tion (PMC) is hardly both­ered to tackle the cri­sis. The civic body has only two cat­tle catch­ers for the en­tire city. PMC deputy mu­nic­i­pal com­mis­sioner Vishal Anand said at least four more mem­bers are re­quired to tackle the prob­lem. Patna has only one shel­ter to keep stray cat­tle. In 2016, the PMC planned to open four more shel­ters, but the plan was shelved.
