  1. Sir,
    Indian parliament and legal systems are based on the British systems.The laws regulating the urban local bodies were enacted during the British rule. British people were always kind and generous towards pet animals.However ,they made very clear provisions in the laws , only to allow, licenced dogs in the municipal areas. Even now the British have their strict regulations on this issue.They never wanted the stray animals to roam freely in the streets. Now, due to some animal activists and judicial verdict no action is being taken under municipal laws and stray dogs are roaming freely. It is needless to say that in India, lot of people are, dwelling in streets without food, and whereas , and the interest shown towards such people are very much less than the interest shown towards stray dogs.The neglect of various regulations, orders of courts , to keep and regulate stray dogs, resulted in to increase in the number of stray dogs.Human life can not be put into risk, in the name of animal welfare.
