Jammu, Feb 5
Residents of Dogra Hall and its adjoining are up in arms against the administration for not shifting the slaughter house which creating miseries for the locals.
Talking to Young Bites correspondent residents of the said locality said that they would launch an agitation if the authorities failed to take any step for shifting it.
It is pertinent to mention here that the slaughterhouse is surrounded by residential houses on three sides, while its fronts face the road, which is lined up with commercial establishments.
Several residents complaining about the unhygienic condition prevailing said that animal waste, blood, was being dumped into a nullah as a result several times it choked the nullah.
They further added that if this practice is carried in the same manner there is every possibility of spreading water-borne diseases.
Bikram Massih a resident said that slaughter house in their locality is not adopting the prescribed rules and regulation as animal waste is dumped into drains which empty into the Tawi.
Although several times instruction have been passed to the slaughter house workers for complying with the norms, but within couple of days of inspection all norms are flouted.
The slaughterhouse, which is running without the permission of the J&K State Pollution Control Board, also does not comply with specifications as it is situated in a low-lying area in the mohalla, which is in complete violation of the rule. A division bench of the Jammu and Kashmir High Court recently directed the JKSPCB to initiate appropriate action against the slaughterhouses in the Jammu region which were functioning without the permission of the board.
JKSPCB had also written to the slaughterhouse to mechanise and upgrade the building as per the norms specified by the department and Jammu Municipal Corporation authorities had sought time.
Around 80 sheep and goats are slaughtered daily, except on Tuesday, at the slaughterhouse. The locals are demanding the shifting of the slaughterhouse to the outskirts of Jammu as it has become a nuisance. Above all the slaughter house is located in front of a Temple, which hurts the sentiments of the devotees visiting the temple causing resentment.
