Bhubaneswar: Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik on Saturday directed the Khurda administration to expedite the process of land acquisition for setting up a new Animal Welfare Center in Jamukoli area of ​​Jatni. The Chief Minister gave this direction during his visit to the existing Gaushala at Jamukoli along with 5T Secretary VK Pandian. Collector, Mayor of Bhubaneswar, BMC Commissioner and other senior officials were present during this period.

Mayor Sulochana Das said Naveen reviewed the facilities and care provided to the cattle kept at the shelter after their rescue. BMC Commissioner Vijay Amrita Kulange said that the Chief Minister has also named a newborn calf as ‘Krishna’.

BMC officials said the chief minister has asked the Khurda collector to expedite the process of land acquisition and handing over to the civic body for cattle management. “We have identified 20 acres of land in Jamukoli for the construction of a new animal welfare center as the present gaushala is already overpopulated,” said an official. Sources said the BMC had set up the existing gaushala in Jamukoli in 2018 on 5.5 acres of land. The gaushala now houses over 900 stray cattle, which were rescued from the streets of the city ahead of the Hockey World Cup. Officials said the new animal welfare center would have a capacity to house 5,000 cattle. It will have all modern facilities for better management of the shelter.

Significantly, the civic body is struggling to tackle the cattle menace which is causing traffic jams and road accidents in the city. The BMC recently warned cattle owners that they would be fined heavily for straying on the roads, while rescued cattle would not be returned.
