Pigs have a free run in Cantonment area
The biggest cantonment in the country is plagued by pigs having a free sway in several areas in front of houses, causing inconvenience to the residents.
Secunderabad Cantonment: The biggest cantonment in the country is plagued by pigs having a free sway in several areas in front of houses, causing inconvenience to the residents.
Not a day passes without packs of pigs moving around nalas, colonies and localities throwing a scare among the residents. They also create unhealthy conditions and emit foul smell, particularly in areas like Manovikasnagar and vacant areas near NIMH, RoyaI Enclave, Picket, Hashmathpet and Rasoolpura.
Locals told The Hans India that complaints against the pigs to the Secunderabad Cantonment Board officials have had no effect. They accuse the officials of not paying due attention to the problems caused by these animals.
The residents allege that some pig rearers and meat-sellers have been letting off the animals in vacant spots amid houses and allowing them to thrive in areas like JBS crossroads.
Pig wastes are being left on both sides of roads in such areas by the traders. With sanitation staff not showing concern over clearing the pig wastes, which start emanating foul smell, the residents fear of getting afflicted with ailments. They demand stringent action against such traders.
