MCG doing some work on stray dogs
The Municipal Corporation of Gurgaon (MCG) has joined hands with the Animal Welfare Board of India (AWBI) to sterilize stray dogs in the city. The AWBI has started a national rabies control programme. The initiative has been aided by the ministry of public health, government of India, which has given the board Rs 30 crore to implement the programme across Haryana.
According to AWBI, there are around 2.5 lakh stray dogs in the state and it will cost around Rs 500 for each sterilization. "Rs 30 crores has been identified for Haryana's Rabies and Street Dog Population Control Programme by the government of India which will be started soon all over Haryana's rural and urban areas," said an AWBI official.
"We want MCG to provide infrastructure, board and lodging facilities for the teams implementing the street dog vaccination and sterilization programme and vehicles for mass vaccinating the dogs and for bringing dogs for sterilization and releasing them back after surgery. We want to make Haryana as the first Indian state that will be free from rabies and street dog nuisance", he said. more
I assume Sridhar Banda ji meant Every sector (and not very sector).
2. MCG taking on such a programme / project in Gurgaon does not inspire or create a sense of CONFIDENCE, I'm afraid.
3. What does "joined hands" mean, can it be explained to the Residents of the city here, please ?
All the above sounds a wee bit "out-spoken", BUT such projects require effective and a disciplined handling.
Wishing AWB of India to handle the subject with professional skill as the City and the district needs the said programme in a big way.
