Stray dogs menace: Kerala municipal chiefs stage protest
A delegation of Kerala municipality chiefs on Thursday staged a protest against the Centre and Union Minister Maneka Gandhi over their stand on culling of stray dogs, which have become a “nightmare” in the state.
Leading the protest organised by the Kerala Municipality Chairmen Chamber, an organisation representing civic body chiefs, Lok Sabha MP M B Rajesh said the minister was not concerned about the stray dogs menace even though kids were being attacked.
“Maneka Gandhi’s love for animals is affecting lakhs of people in Kerala. Even kids are being mauled in the state.
Stray dogs have become a nightmare. The minister is not concerned about any of these,” he said. The protest at Jantar Mantar here saw participation of almost all the municipal chiefs in the state.
