Odisha: BMC bans cattle movement on Bhubaneswar roads | Bhubaneswar News

BHUBANESWAR: To check the cattle menace in the city, the Bhubaneswar Municipal Corporation (BMC) has imposed a ban on movement of cattle on roads in the city.
Persons allowing their cattle to roam in the city road of BMC area will be treated as illegal, said an official notification.
After finding any cattle roaming on the road, the civic body will lift them and keep them at animal welfare centres (AWCs) at Jamukoli, Jatni municipality and Govind Go Sevashram in Puri, said the notification issued by the civic body on Tuesday.
BMC deputy commissioner Ramesh Jena said they are concerned about the stray cattle menace which is causing traffic obstruction, death due to accidents on road and evasion of tourist places like Lingaraj temple. Even the traffic on city roads is increasing.
“It is observed that several road accidents occur due to direct vehicular hits to the animal or while the driver is trying to avoid hitting the animals on the road. Animals on the road are accident prone and it creates problems during the night-time when the visibility becomes poor and movement of the traffic goes faster,” said Jena.
Some agencies have been engaged to lift the cattle and put them at the designated AWCs. If required, the BMC can send the cattle to an AWC at Choudwar in Cuttack district.
The civic body has started creating awareness among people across the city through miking on its latest move to solve the stray cattle menace. More than 200 stray cattle have been lifted from the BMC area within the last six days. Earlier, the civic body was lifting around six cattle per day, but now the number has risen to 30-35 per day, said the sources.
A BMC officer said most of the owners of the cows do not keep male calves at home because they do not get profit from these calves. As they do not want to invest in their feed, they leave them on the street and create traffic woes, he added.
“Action should be taken against the owners of the cattle for not taking care of the animals. The civic body should provide food and other facilities to the cattle which are lodged at the AWCs,” said Jiban Ballav Das, animal rights activist.
