The committee chairman, Mr Pradeep Chhabra, informed that Medical Officer of Health (MOH) had been asked to conducts raids at meat shops to check the supply of unhygienic meat.

It was alleged that unhygienic meat from neighbouring areas was finding its way to the city.

The MOH, Dr G.C. Bansal, assured the meeting that all Sehaj Safai Kendras (SSKs) would be made operational and the entire city would be “bin-free” by December this year.

The committee approved the purchase of green fodder worth Rs 8.22 lakh for the cows at the cattle pond in the Industrial Area and the gaushala in Sector 25.
