BARAMULLA, Jan 29: Stray dogs have unleashed a terror, and the department concerned is least bothered about the safety of human beings, such is a terror that in the evening time people face fear while walking alone in the market.
Recent snow has compounded more troubles for the people as the snow has got accumulated or dumped on the both sides of the national highway, due to which it gives tough time to people to walk freely, said local residents of Khowjabagh.
The local residents believe that around hundreds of dogs are roaming here in main markets of, Khowjabagh, Jetty, Khanpora, Kanispora and main town of Baramulla.
“Life has become hell for the people. It has become difficult for residents of these areas to live a safe and secure life here. One fails to understand where from these dogs have come in such a huge number”, Mehraj-ud Din of Khowjabagh told Early Times.
He said that, our lives have been threatened due to the presence of dogs. It has become difficult for one and all to move out of our houses whenever in need, adding few days back my 9 year old son was attacked by almost 20 dogs at a time, fortunately some locals rescued him, otherwise they would have tore him into pieces.
Residents of these areas allege that the authorities of Municipal Committee are more concerned towards the welfare of dogs than human beings. They threatened to stage protest demonstrations outside the office of the Municipal Committee, Baramulla in case speedy action is not taken in this matter.
Bilal Ahmad from Kanispora said that, it seems that the concerned authorities are in money making business and costly sterilization. The presence of dogs is a matter of grave concern but still then there is no relief for the common masses.
There are dozens of street vendors especially barbecue vendors on both the sides of national highway, and vendors throw their wasteful items on roads and due to which stray dogs roam in search of their food, said Bilal Ahmad.
The municipal authorities should pull up the socks so that the people move around the locality freely without any fear whatsoever, locals added.
The residents said that heaps of garbage and other waste present in the locality and other parts of Baramulla provide a breeding ground for the dogs.
They said timely disposal of garbage from the municipal department would have ensured that dogs are kept at bay. They demanded swift action in the disposal of garbage from the different parts of town.
