After the slaughterhouse in Pimpri-Chinchwad Municipal Corporation area came under fire from residents for unhygienic conditions,it has been on the lookout for land to shift it.

PCMC veterinary chief Dr Satish Gore said they had been searching for land to relocate the slaughterhouse for years. “Wherever we have tried to set up a slaughterhouse,there has been opposition from residents. Therefore,we had to drop the plan. We are consulting the Town Planning department for a suitable place. The department has already been intimated,” he said. Municipal Commissioner Asheesh Sharma said they had approached the Dehu Cantonment Board. DCB says it has no land to spare. “We don’t even have enough land for our amenities . DCB’s land is only for use by the Ministry of Defence whose permission is required for constructing the slaughterhouse,” said DCB CEO Prasad Chavan.

Meanwhile,PCMC corporator Babu Nair said that PCMC should first build a small slaughterhouse on a pilot basis and maintain a high level of hygiene in an effort to win public confidence.

“People do not want the slaughterhouse to be shifted in their area as they are sceptical about the civic body’s ability to maintain cleanliness,” he added. Former mayor Mangala Kadam said that the slaughterhouse should be constructed outside the city. Also,meat markets should be started in all the four wards in the township.
