Vrindavan, 2018.02.03 (VT) Municipal Corporation staff have been told that not one bull should be visible on the streets of Vrindavan. Municipal commissioner, Dr. Ujjwal Kumar gave the deadline of 11th of February for rounding up the stray bulls.
The bulls will to be relocated to goshalas (cow sanctuaries), however, in Vrindavan, there are not many goshalas that can accommodate bulls. Many goshalas refuse bulls as they only accommodate stray cows and the promised Government Goshala has not yet been constructed. In previous round up campaigns, bulls have been relocated to Ramesh Baba’s Mataji Goshala in Barsana and two gaushalas in Vrindavan.
During an inspection of the development and beautification of the streetscape of Vrindavan’s Parikrama Marg, under the government’s HRIDAY scheme, the Commissioner said that the work needs to be sped up so that the project can be completed by the scheduled time.
The commissioner took care to investigate the condition of Vrindavan’s Ghats. He was not completely satisfied with the cleanliness, and especially noticed the large number of stray animals roaming the streets.
Bulls roaming the streets are the cause of many road accidents as, when engaged in a duel with another bull, they often move, with great speed, from one side of the road to the other sweeping up motorists and pedestrians.
