    High time to wake our respected government officials/ministers to value human life of its citizens and not sacrifice it just in name of animal welfare. People are mauled everyday by such stray dogs and government seems to be least bothered about its citizens in this aspect. Pls wake up Sarkar especially Honourable Ministers!!
