MCC to provide plot near Rayanakere for pig rearing

June 19, 2020

Mysore/Mysuru: In a bid to address numerous complaints of pig menace in the city, the Mysuru City Corporation (MCC) is planning to provide space to pig owners near Rayanakere in the outskirts of the city.

At a meeting of the MCC’s Standing Committee on Health that took place at the old Council Hall of the MCC on Tuesday, many Corporators raised the issue of stray pig menace.

Committee Chairman Gopi said that land has been identified near Rayanakere on H.D. Kote Road for pig rearing. 

Pointing out that many pig owners, who are fed up with paying fines for letting their pigs on to the roads, have also demanded an appropriate place for rearing, he said that the MCC, in a bid to end the stray pig menace, is planning to reserve space near Rayanakere exclusively for pig rearing. The MCC is the first Corporation in the State to come up with such a plan, he added.

Referring to shortage of hearse, Gopi said that at present, the MCC has four hearses, which are being used only in city limits. Noting that there is a demand for hearse from various other localities along the Ring Road that do not come under the MCC’s purview, Gopi said that poor families would be under financial strain for hiring private vehicles to shift dead bodies to burial grounds and directed the officials to purchase two more hearse vehicles in order to cover more areas.

Committee Members Bhagya Mahadesh, Pandu and Shobha, Additional MCC Commissioner N.M. Shashikumar, Council Secretary Rangaswamy, Superintending Engineer Biligiri Rangaswamy, Health Officer Dr. Jayanth, Veterinary Officer Tirumalegowda and other officials were present at the meeting.
