No respite from stray cattle on roads
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.
