Rewari, March 20

The court of Rewari SDM has put 12 officials of various government departments here on notice while hearing a petition on public nuisance caused by illegal meat shops, stray cattle and monkeys, stubble burning, violation of fundamental right to education and non-availability of basic amenities in the district.

The officials served notice include executive officers of Rewari and Dhaaruhera municipal councils, block development and panchayat officers of Rewari, Jatusana and Nahad blocks, secretary (Road Transport Authority) Dhaaruhera, labour officer, civil surgeon, district education officer, deputy director (Animal Husbandry) and the SHO of Model Town police station here, said sources.

The sources maintained that the court had also directed the officials to submit their comments/ reply over the issues pointed out in the petition by March 30.

The petition was recently filed by Naresh Kadyan, chief of People for Animal (PFA), Haryana, who sought action against erring officials for failing to ensure compliance of law to curb public nuisance.

“Meat shops are being run sans licence and the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (Slaughter House) Rules are being violated with impunity due to negligence of local bodies officials. Animal waste is being dumped at unauthorised places in absence of solid waste management,” said Kadyan. He added that meat shop owners were not getting goats/chickens and other animals tested in laboratories before slaughtering, which was mandatory.

He said the menace of stray animals was also creating public nuisance to a large extent.

“Misuse of oxytocin injections is being done for lactation and stubble is being burnt openly despite a ban. However, officials concerned are turning a blind eye to these illegal activities. Violation of fundamental rights is also being committed by not ensuring education, water, electricity and sanitation to people,” said Kadyan.
