Noida: The Chief Executive Officer of Noida Industrial Development Authority, Ritu Maheshwari, on Thursday assured residents of the city to deploy two to three more private agencies for sterilisation of stray animals. The outcome is the result of a meeting held between the CEO and delegation of the residents where the delegation presented a list of the issues faced by them to the top officer of the authority.
Ravi Kant Mishra, chairman of Janshakti Sewa Samiti, a Noida based social organisation, who led the delegation, said that they raised the issue of stray animals demanding an action to control them. Maheshwari apprised them that they were in a process to hire the agencies. Once finalised they would be deployed for effectively controlling them.
