RAWALPINDI - The citizens have complained that the City District Government Rawalpindi (CDGR) was only conducting surveys instead of taking concrete steps for the removal of cattle, especially buffalos, from congested areas of the city, creating stinking smell.
Citizens complained that the concerned officials have been using delaying tactics for the removal of buffalos and have failed to take any concreted action in this regard. They said that according to the orders of the Supreme Court, buffalo farms couldn’t be kept in cities, which create stinky smell bothering the residents of the localities.
The citizens added that buffalos were not only contributing to poor environment while the sewerage system of the localities often remains blocked where buffalos are kept which form ponds of stagnant nullah water. The poor situation provides breeding places to various infectious insects and mosquitoes. They have asked the concerned authorities to visit the localities where the buffalos are kept in order to know how the residents were living in miserable environment.
