Srinagar: Prominent animal rights activist Maneka Gandhi has phoned SMC Commissioner Dr G N Qasba to know about the status of dog sterilization in Srinagar.
Sources said Maneka enquired about the steps taken by the civic body to tackle the dog menace and sterilization.
Dr Qasba is understood to have told Maneka that SMC has come up with “country’s best dog sterilization facility at the state-of-the-art dog pound constructed at Shuhama.”
The Commissioner told her that around 40 dogs have been sterilized till date and the procedure would continue in future as well in collaboration with the Animal Welfare Board of India.
“We are tackling the dog menace through two-pronged strategy which apart from sterilization includes proper garbage disposal so that the people or the animals don’t face any conflict,” Dr Qasba is believed to have told Maneka to which she appreciated the State Government for the endeavor.
When contacted Dr Qasba confirmed the development and said she was satisfied to know about the steps taken by the Government.
