Stray cattle roam around on main roads, SMC sleeps
GK NEWS NETWORK
Srinagar, Oct 6: The roaming around of stray cattle in the City is going so unchecked that one can find them even at places frequented by the VIPs. Same holds true for the road leading to the Legislative Assembly complex and the Civil Secretariat where one can find the cows.
With Assembly session in progress, the authorities had to face severe embarrassment when some cattle came in way of cavalcades zooming past the posh street.
The Srinagar Municipal Corporation had to rush out its teams on war footing to whisk away the stray lot.
Since then even though the SMC tries to keep the cattle away from the Dalgate Batamaloo track, the animals enjoy their day out elsewhere.
This has resulted in mishaps. “We had a narrow escape when a cow suddenly came in our way,” said a resident of Maharaja Bazar adding that his car was badly damaged in the mishap. The animal was also wounded.
But then who is responsible for the menace? Well the SMC officials say they find it difficult to act in the wake of ongoing unrest.
“Taking away a stray cattle can lead to protests so we avoid any such confrontation with the public,” said a SMC official requesting not to be named.
He, however, said the corporation was trying to keep the stray lot away from the roads frequented by the VIPs.
