Court demands plan for improvement of go-sadans

Staff Reporter

NEW DELHI: The Delhi High Court on Wednesday directed the Delhi Government and the Municipal Corporation of Delhi to prepare and submit a joint action plan to it for improvement of sanitary conditions at the five go-sadans in the Capital.

A Division Bench of the Court comprising Justice A. P. Shah and Justice S. Muralidhar also directed the civic body to take action against errant non-government organisations if they were found wanting in the running of the cow shelters.

The directions came on a public interest litigation alleging that on an average a hundred cows die every day at these cattle shelters due to overcrowding, poor sanitation and infectious diseases. The civic body also acknowledged in its reply to the petition the poor hygienic conditions prevailing at the go-sadans. However, it also claimed that the mortality rate among cattle kept at these shelters had come down from 72 per day in August- September this year to 53 per day in October following certain steps taken by it to reduce it.

These shelters are run by NGOs under the direct supervision of the Animal Husbandry Department of the Delhi Government. The civic body stated that it had found various discrepancies in one of these go-sadans.
