The Municipal Corporation, Ludhiana, will start a drive against the stray cattle menace in the city.

MC Commissioner Pardeep Kumar Sabharwal ordered the health branch concerned to act immediately in the matter. Senior veterinary officer Harbans Dhalla said: “An agreement has been signed in this regard between Joint Commissioner Swati Tiwana on the behalf of the Commissioner and Ajit Lakra, a volunteer of the Dhyian Foundation, an NGO.”

“It has agreed to move 150 stray cattle from the city to the government gaushala at Burj Pawat village near Samrala. The foundation will look after the feeding, labour and medical expenses of the cattle while the MC will pay them for the same. The foundation is already managing about 30 gaushalas across the country,” Dr Dhalla said.

He said more stray cattle would be shifted to other gaushalas, including Krishan Balram Gaushala on Pakhowal road and Gobind Gaudham on Hambran Road.
