New Delhi, 3rd February 2017: The expansion and “menace” of stray dogs in one of the affluent locality of Delhi has become a concern for the residents. On Thursday, the residents of Amar Colony, Lajpat Nagar lodged the complaint with SDMC against the stray dogs. The locals alleged that despite repeated reminders, the municipal authorities have done nothing to address their concerns.
“The threat of street dogs continue to be a big concern and the authorities are paying no heed to our complaints” claimed a local.
One of the officials of SDMC said, we have made a plan to reduce the threat of the menace dogs and will implement the ABC programme effectively soon”
The Municipal Corporations of Delhi (MCD), overloaded with citizens’ grievances related to the “menace” of stray dogs in their colonies, have evidently failed to do much about restraining the stray dog population of the city. In fact, none of the three MCDs even has data on the number of dogs living in Delhi, reports Sunday Guardian.
