New Delhi: Parliament seems to be struck by monkey and dog menace. In a written reply to Rajya Sabha on Wednesday, Urban Development Minister Venkaiah Naidu assured the House that various efforts are being made to tackle monkey and dog menace inside and around Parliament House.

Replying to Rajya Sabha MP Ambeth Rajan on the issue, Naidu said the measures being taken include scaring the monkeys away by trained persons who disguise themselves as langurs. New Delhi Municipal Corporation (NDMC) has hired forty young persons for this purpose. NDMC also acquired Sure Shot Rubber Bullet Guns for scaring away the monkeys.

A team of dog catchers visits the Parliament House and surrounding areas twice a week for catching unimmunized and unsterilized stray dogs.
