Mayor of Belgaum Yallappa Kurubarhas threatened to commit suicide, if the slaughterhouses located in Auto Nagar and Kanbaragi are not shifted within 15 days. He is frustrated after his repetitive pleas to the concerned to shift the slaughterhouses outside these areas, failed to get the desired result.
The general session of the Corporation’s council had earlier passed a resolution for shifting these slaughterhouses. The slaughterhouses are flouting hygiene norms and throwing pieces of flesh and animal waste etc., into the lakes. The animals get sick after drinking water from the lakes. District administration has identified a site near Kakati village for relocating the slaughterhouses.
