Bosky Khanna ByExpress News ServiceBENGALURU: Pet owners in the city may soon have to keep a watch on, and collect the faeces of their pets littered in public places.
One of the points in the solid waste management by-laws draft, prepared by Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike (BBMP), speaks about managing the mess created by pets.
BBMP Joint Commissioner of Solid Waste Management and Health, Sarfaraz Khan, told CE that normally pourakarmikas clean the roads every morning, which also includes dogs’ waste.
But if pet owners help out, then things can improve, he added.
It was also suggested to penalise pet owners littering Cubbon Park, but it did not materialise.
